🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Tezcan's class at UCSD.
We are asked to calculate the average rate of decomposition of H2O2 and O2 in the given reaction:
2 H2O2 (aq) → 2 H2O (l) + O2 (g)
We’re given the following data:
2.16 × 104
4.32 × 104
At 40°C, H2O2(aq) will decompose according to the following reaction:
2H2O2 (aq) → 2H2O (l) + O2 (g)
The following data were collected for the concentration of H 2O2 at various times.
a. Calculate the average rate of decomposition of H 2O2 between 0 and 2.16 x 104 s. Use this rate to calculate the average rate of production of O2(g) over the same time period.
