🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Hartman's class at MONTANA.
We can express the average rate of reaction by the change in concentration HBr divided by the change in time and its coefficient in the balanced reaction.
Consider the following reaction:
2HBr (g) → H2 (g) + Br2 (g)
In the first 23.0 s of this reaction the of HBr dropped from 0.550 M to 0.457 M. Calculated the average rate (M•s-1) of the reaction in this time interval. Express your answer using two significant figures.
If the volume of the reaction in part (a) was 1.50 L. what amount of Br2 (in moles) was formed during the 15.0 s of the reaction? Express your answer using two significant figures.
