## In the reaction 2 O3(g) → 3 O2(g), the rate of formation of O2 is 1.5 × 10−3 mol/L · s. What is the rate of decomposition of O3?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The rate of decomposition of O3 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 of Solution

The relative rate of the chemical reaction is given as,

Reaction Rate = - 1coefficientΔ[reactants]Δt = +1coefficient Δ[products]ΔtGivenreaction: 2O3(g) 3O2(g)Reactant: 2O3(g)Product: 3O3(g)The red colored numbers represent the stoichiometry coefficients
