A reaction is thought to proceed according to the following mechanism:

2NO + H2 N2 + H2O2 (slow)

H2O2 + H2 2H2O

c) What would happen to the overall reaction rate if we injected some extra H2O2 into

the reaction mixture?

a) 2NO + 2H2  N2 + 2H2O

b) [H2O2] is always very low because it is generated slowly but used up

quickly

c) would speed up only the fast step,  no change in overall rxn rate

d) the first step (the slow one) is the rate determining step
