The gas phase reaction of nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide was found by experiment to be second-
order with respect to NO,, and zeroth-order with respect to CO below 25°C.
NO, + CO --> NO + CO,
Which one of the following mechanisms is consistent with the observed reaction order?
Select one:
NO2 + 2CO S N+ 2CO2
a.

Expert Answer

Step 1

The order of each reactant in a reaction is represented by the exponential term of the respective reactant present in the rate law and the overall order of the reaction is the sum of all exponents of all the reactants.

Given that the o...
