2.Dinitrogen pentoxide decomposes according to the following reaction:2 N2O54 NO2+ O2The 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.
3.The thermal decomposition of acetaldehyde is given by the following reaction:CH3CHO CH4+ COAt 800 K, the following data are obtained:Reactant concentrationRate of decomposition of CH3CHO[CH3CHO] (M)-d[CH3CHO]/dt (Ms-1)0.1009.0 x 10-70.20036 x 10-70.40014.4 x 10-6a) Write the rate equation for the reaction.b) What is the order of the reaction?c) Calculate the rate constant for the reaction at 800K.
