1. The sum of Steps 1 and 2 must yield the overall reaction. 2. NO 3 is called a reaction intermediate. It is not a reactant nor a product. NO 2 + CO NO + CO 2 k 1 k 2 65

These two steps are very unlikely to proceed at the same rate. One will be much slower than the other. It is the RATE DETERMINING STEP. NO 2 + CO NO + CO 2 67

rate = k[NO 2 ] 2 A possible reaction mechanism: Step 1: NO 2 + NO 2 NO 3 + NO slow Step 2: NO 3 + CO NO 2 + CO 2 fast NO 2 + CO NO + CO 2 68

Reaction Mechanisms Sequence of steps by which reactants turn to products For Mechanism to be valid: Sum of steps must total to overall reaction Must agree with observed rate law 69

Rate-Determining Step Slow step in the mechanism Step that determines the rate of reaction and the rate law 70

71 ELEMENTARY STEPS RATE LAW DEPENDS ON MOLECULARITY (i.e., the # of species that must collide to produce the reaction indicated by that step.) UNIMOLECULAR STEP: Rxn. involving one molecule; always 1 st order.
