2. Dinitrogen pentoxide decomposes according to the following reaction: 2 N 2 O 5 4 NO 2 + O 2 The rate of any reaction can be expressed in terms of the disappearance of reactants or the appearance of products. These expressions for the rate must be positive and equivalent. Considering this, write three expressions for the rate of the above reaction.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
