# The decomposition of N2O5(g) at 320K according to the following equation follows first order reaction - Chemistry

The decomposition of N2O5(g) at 320K according to the following equation follows first order reaction:

N_2O_(5(g))->2NO_(2(g))+1/2O_(2(g))

The initial concentration of N2O5(g) is 1.24 x 10-2 mol. L-1 and after 60 minutes 0.20x10-2 molL-1. Calculate the rate constant of the reaction at 320K.

#### Solution

Data: N_2O_(5(g))->2NO_(2(g))+1/2O_2

[N_2O_5][email protected]=1.24xx10^-2molL^-1

[N_2O_5]_t=0.20xx10^-2molL^-1

k=?   t=60min

Solution :

k=2.303/t log""([N_2O_5])/([N_2O_5])

k=2.303/60log""((1.24xx10^-2))/((0.2xx10^-2))

k=0.0383x0.7924

k= 0.303min-1
