Notes: I am using โโs instead of d โs because these are average rates. However, it would
not be wrong to use derivative notation. Itโs a matter of taste, and Iโm not completely
consistent about it myself. Also note that I got the answer to this question using more
digits than are shown in my answer to question 3a. This is the correct procedure, even
if the two numbers are then not quite in the stoichiometric ratio of 2:1. This is ๏ฌne
since the last signi๏ฌcant ๏ฌgure shown in any calculation is supposed to be somewhat
uncertain. (Thatโs why we stop at that digit rather than some other.) ยก ยก ยข 4. The rate law is assumed to be of a simple form, e.g. dx dt kxn . If we increase x by a factor
of 3, dx dt increases by a factor of 9 32 . Therefore, the order of the reaction with respect
to the reactant (n) is 2. ยข (a) Experiments 1, 2 and 3 were performed at identical nitrogen monoxide concentrations.
The concentration of ozone was doubled from experiment 1 to experiment 2 and the
rate increased by a factor of 2. Comparing experiments 1 and 3, the ratio of the ozone
concentrations is 3 and the ratio of the rates is also 3. The rate is therefore proportional
to the ozone concentration.
Experiments 3, 4 and 5 were performed at identical ozone concentrations. The NO
concentration was doubled in experiment 4 compared to experiment 3 and the rate
doubled. Comparing experiments 3 and 5, we see that both the NO concentrations and
rates are in ratios of 1:3. Thus, the rate is also proportional to the NO concentration.
The rate law is therefore

avoid getting an answer in awkward units (22 0 L ยตmol 1s 1 or 22 0 L ยตM). Strange
units like these are sometimes useful, but it is generally considered bad style to have a
pre๏ฌx in the denominator of units in the SI system. The pre๏ฌxes should really only be
used as pre๏ฌxes, i.e. at the beginning of a unit, whether it is a simple unit (g, mol, L,
etc.) or a compound unit (such as ยตmol L 1s 1 ). 5. 2 (c) ยก ยก ยฃยค
