The average rate of disappearance of ozone in the reaction 2O_3(g) ---> 3O_2(g) is found to be...


The average rate of disappearance of ozone in the reaction 2O{eq}_3{/eq}(g) → 3O{eq}_2{/eq}(g) is found to be 7.91 x 10{eq}^{-3}{/eq} atm over a certain interval of time. What is the rate of appearance of O{eq}_2{/eq} during this interval?

Rate Law:

When a reaction's rate is compared with the concentration of the reactant species, the resultant expression is termed as the rate law of that reaction. The rate law tells us about the speed of the reaction in terms of either the disappearance of a reactant(s) or appearance of a product(s). There is a temperature-dependent rate constant associated with the rate law.
