The rate law for the reaction 2NO2 + O3 → N2O5 + O2 is rate = K[NO2][O3]. Which one of the following mechanisms Is consistent with this rate law?
A. NO2 + NO2 → N2O2 (fast)
N2O4 + O3 → N2O5 + O2 (slow)
B. NO2 + O3 → NO5 (fast)
NO5 + NO5 → N2O5 + (5/2)O2 (slow)
C. NO2 + O3 → NO3 + O2 (slow)
NO3 + NO2 → N2O5 (fast)
D. NO2 + NO2 → N2O2 + O2 (slow)
N2O2 + O3 → N2O5 (fast)
