CHEMISTRY 1008 Name: ___________________ Homework Assignment #5 Due: Thursday, March 3 (it will be much more helpful to finish this before prelim #1) 1. (4 pts) Give the rate law for each of the following elementary reactions: (a) O 3 (g) + Cl(g) 1 O 2 (g) + ClO(g) (b) NO 2 (g) 1 O(g) + NO(g) (c) O(g) + ClO(g) 1 O 2 (g) + Cl(g) (d) N 2 (g) + Cl(g) +Cl(g) 1 N 2 (g) + Cl 2 (g) 2. (3 pts) The thermal decomposition of nitryl chloride, NO2Cl, is believed to occur by the following mechanism:

(b) What rate law is predicted by this mechanism if the first step is the rate-determining step? 3. (3 pts) The reaction, 2NO 2 (g) + F 2 (g) 1 2NO 2 F(g), has a second order rate law: rate = k[NO 2 ][F 2 ]. Suggest a mechanism that is consistent with this rate law....
