# Write the rate laws for the following elementary reactions.a. CH3NC(g) → CH3CN(g)b. O3(g) + NO(g) → O2(g) + NO2(g)c. O3(g) → O2(g) + O(g)d. O3(g) + O(g) → 2O2(g)

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The rate law of the given elementary reactions is to be determined.

Concept introduction: The change observed in the concentration of a reactant or a product per unit time is known as the rate of the particular reaction. The differential rate law provides the rate of a reaction at specific reaction concentrations.

To determine: The rate law for the elementary reaction,

CH3NC(g)CH3CN(g)

Explanation

The given reaction is,

CH3NC(g)CH3CN(g)

The rate law gives the relation between reaction rate and concentration of reactants

To determine: The rate law for the elementary reaction,

O3(g)+NO(g)O2(g)+NO2(g)
