Question 4 - 8 1. No, not all N 2 O 4 was used up. On the graph N 2 O 4 does not go to zero. 2. 1.6 mol NO 2 were produced 3. 2 mol NO 2 should by produced (according to the balanced equation ) 4. Think back to Ep graphs. Both forward and reverse reactions occur. As N 2 O 4 breaks down the concentration of NO 2 increases. This increased [ ] increases the rate of the reaction of NO 2 combining to form N 2 O 4 5. [N 2 O 4 ] = [N 2 O 4 ] initial – 1/2 [NO 2 ] or in words (note: 2 is from the balanced equation)
