Δ[O 2 ] 3 · Δ t 2. - Δ[SO 3 ] 2 · Δ t 3. - Δ[O 2 ] 3 · Δ t correct 4. - 4 · Δ[S 8 ] Δ t 5. 2 · Δ[SO 3 ] Δ t Explanation: rate = - Δ[O 2 ] 3 · Δ t = Δ[SO 3 ] 2 · Δ t 002 10.0points One of the reactions used commercially to produce hydrogen gas is H 2 O(g) + CO(g) H 2 (g) + CO 2 (g) . A proper expression for the rate of this reaction could be 1. - Δ[H 2 ] Δt . 2. - Δ[CO 2 ] Δt . 3. + Δ[CO] Δt . 4. - Δ[H 2 O] Δt . correct Explanation: The rate of a chemical reaction can either be expressed as the rate of disappearance of the reactant (as in this case) or as the rate of the appearance of the product; however, this rate is multiplied by the inverse of the coefficient of the species in question. The negative sign here reminds us that as the reaction progresses, this species is consumed and goes down in concentration.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
