Question

# \text { a. The rate of the reaction } 2 \mathrm{NO}_{2}(g) \rightleftharpoons \mathrm{N}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{4}(g) \text { is given by the rate law below: } \text { Rate }=\mathrm{k}\left[\mathrm{NO}_{2}\right]^{2} What would the rate of the reaction be under the following conditions? (4 points) \text { rate constant }=1.8 \times 10^{3}(\mathrm{~L} / \mathrm{mol}) / \mathrm{s} \left[\mathrm{NO}_{2}\right]=0.007 \mathrm{M} b. One step in the industrial production of hydrogen gas involves reacting C0 with steam according to the reaction CO(g) + H,0(g) = CO-(g) + H;(g). Heat is produced in this reaction, which is represented by the following diagram. Use the equation and diagram to answer the following questions. (12 points)
