say we have a reaction that is no to plus sell to gives us c l and L two plus C l and you know to plus C l is giving us c l N 02 Now the question. Ask us what is the overall reaction? Intermediates and retina. Then again, the very first one is slow and the second one is the fast steps. So let's find the overall reaction. We're going to add them and we're going to first canceled the ones on the left hand side and right hand side. These goes, What else? Nothing else. So let's write it, you know? And we have to, you know, to plus Seattle to and we have to see l no to now this is going to be our overall reaction. Where are the intermediates? Chlorine are the intermediates and what's read law. That's right for this slow. And then see if there's any problem that we encounter. So I'm going to say this is K one and this is Kate. You So the rate law for overall is going to be the great law for the slow reaction, because it's the rate determining step. So we have K one. No, to see how to now. Do we have a problem with this? Let's see. Do you have any intermediates? N 02 It's not sell to its Not so There's no problem with thought. And this is going to be our great determining steps Read law as well as the Red Law for the overall reaction.
