Ethene (C2H4) reacts with ozone (O3) to form ethene ozonide (C2H4O3) :
O3 + C2H4 → C2H4O3
In a university laboratory experiment the rate of disappearance of ozone (O3) was measured to be 9 x 10-3 M/s. Simultaneously, the concentration of ozone was measured to be 9 x 10-5 M and the concentration of ethene 2.5 x 10-7 M. Given that this chemiluminescent chemical reaction follows the following rate law:
Rate = K[O3][C2H4]
calculate the rate constant k.
The rate constant is... View the full answer
