Nitrogen monoxide reacts with oxygen to give nitrogen dioxide.2 NO(g) + O2(g) → 2 NO2(g) (a) You wish to react NO and O2 in the correct stoichiometric ratio. The sample of NO has a volume of 150 mL. What volume of O2 is required (at the same pressure and temperature)? (b) What volume of NO2 (at the same pressure and temperature) is formed in this reaction?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The volume of O2 required to complete the given reaction has to be found out.

Concept Introduction:

• To relate the amount of gas and the volume.
• VnatconstantTandP
• V1n1=V2n2V2=V1n2n1
Explanation

The volume of O2 required to complete the given reaction.

VnatconstantTandP

The given reaction is:

2NO+O22NO2

Given data:

V1(volumeofNO)=150ml=0

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

The volume of NO2 produced in the given reaction has to be found out.

Concept Introduction:

• To relate the amount of gas and the volume.
• VnatconstantTandP
• V1n1=V2n2V2=V1n2n1
