Lesson 29 Example 29-1 The decomposition reaction N 2 O 5 → NO 3 + NO 2 follows the mechanism: 2 N 2 O 5 ↔ N 2 O 5 * + N 2 O 5 N 2 O 5 * → NO 3 + NO 2 where N 2 O 5 * is a molecule at high energy level capable of decomposing into NO 3 and NO 2 . The experimentally-measured rate of reaction varies with N 2 O 5 concentration: At high [N 2 O 5 ] the reaction is 1 st order, but at low [N 2 O 5 ], the reaction is 2 nd order. Explain why the reaction order varies with [N 2 O 5 ]. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ 1

Lesson 29 Example 29-2 The O 3 layer in earth’s upper atmosphere is important in shielding the earth from the harmful ultraviolet radiation. O 3 decomposes according to the equation The mechanism for the reaction is proposed to proceed through the following steps: Using the steady state approximation for the O radical, the rate for the decomposition of O
