2 N2O(g) → 2 N2(g) + O2(g)



Recall that for a reaction aA  bB, the rate of a reaction is given by:


Rate=-1aΔ[A]Δt=1bΔ[B]Δt


where: 

Δ[A] = change in concentration of reactants or products (in mol/L or M), [A]final – [A]initial

Δt = change in time, tfinal – tinitial



Since N2O is a reactant, the rate with respect to N2O is negative (–) since we’re losing reactants
