Textbook Problem

What are the relative rates of appearance or disappearance of each product and reactant in the decomposition of nitrosyl chloride, NOCI?

2 NOC1(g) → 2 NO(g) + Cl2(g)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The rate of disappearance of reactants and formation of products in the decomposition of nitrosyl chloride 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 average rate of the chemical reaction is given as,

  Reaction Rate  1coefficientΔ[reactants]Δt  +1coefficient Δ[products]ΔtGivenreaction: 2NOCl(g)2NO(g)+1Cl2(g)Reactant: 2NOCl(g)Products: 2NO(g)+1Cl2(g)
