Problem: Given the reaction below2NO + 2H2 → N2 + 2H2Othe concentration is measured in moles per liter, what are the units for the rate of production of water?A) L2/(mol2 • min).B) mol2/(L2 • min).C) mol/(L • min).D) mol3/(L3 • min).E) mol/( L2 • min).

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the units for the rate of production of water for the reaction below:

2 NO + 2 H2 → N2 + 2 H2O


General or Average Rate is the change in the concentration of a compound over a period of time.

Rate=Δ[A]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
