🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Donnelly's class at URI.
The Rate law for the reaction
2 NO(g) + Cl2(g) → 2 NOCl(g)
is: Rate = k [NO][Cl2]
If the following is the mechanism for the reaction
NO(g) + Cl2(g) → NOCl2(g)
NOCl2(g) + NO(g) → 2NOCl(g)
Which statement is NOT true?
A) The reaction is 2nd order overall
B) k1 < k2
C) Doubling the [Cl2] will double the rate
D) The reaction is first order in [Cl2]
E) If the volume is doubled the rate will quadruple
