You have studied the gas-phase oxidation of HBr by O2:
4 HBr1g2 + O21g2¡2 H2O1g2 + 2 Br21g2
You find the reaction to be first order with respect to HBr
and first order with respect to O2. You propose the following
HBr1g2 + O21g2¡ HOOBr1g2
HOOBr1g2 + HBr1g2¡2 HOBr1g2
HOBr1g2 + HBr1g2¡ H2O1g2 + Br21g2
(b) Based on the experimentally determined
rate law, which step is rate determining?
