Unformatted text preview: 2 (from 0-100s) = 1.8x10-5 M / s Note that this is ½ that of NO 2 and NO Rate of consumption of NO 2 = Rate of formation of NO = 2(Rate of formation of O 2 ) Because the rate of formation of O 2 is ½ that of NO 2 and NO you need to multiply it by 2 to have them equal one another...
