A proposed mechanism for the oxidation of nitric oxide to
nitrogen dioxide was described in Problem 14.29. Another
possible mechanism for this reaction is
2 NO1g2 k1
N2O21g2 Faster, reversible
N2O21g2 + O21g2 ¡ k2 2NO21g2 Slower, rate-determining
(c) Relate the rate constant k to the rate constants for the
This video solution was recommended by our tutors as helpful for the problem above.
