Textbook Problem

Give the relative rates of disappearance of reactants and formation of products for each of the following reactions.

  1. (a) 2 NO(g) + Br2(g) → 2NOBr(g)
  2. (b) N2(g) + 3H2(g) → 2NH3(g)

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The rate of disappearance of reactants and formation of products has to be given.

Concept introduction:

Relative rates and stoichiometry: During a chemical reaction, amounts of reactant decrease with time and amounts of products increases.

  Reaction Rate = - 1coefficientΔ[reactants]Δt = +1coefficient Δ[products]Δt

Explanation

The relative rate of the chemical reaction is given as,

  Reaction Rate = - 1coefficientΔ[reactants]Δt = +1coefficient Δ[products]ΔtGivenreaction: 2NO(g) + 1Br2(g)2NOBr(g)Reactant: 2NO(g) + Br2(g)Product: 2NOBr(g) The red colored numbers represent the stoichiometry coefficients
