Question #191710

The decomposition of N2O5 follows first-order kinetics based on the reaction below. 

 

2N2O5(g)        O2(g) + 4NO2(g) 

 

The rate constant of the reaction at 25ºC is 3.46 x 10-5 /s. How long (in seconds) would it take for an initial concentration of 0.050 M to decrease to 0.015 M? What is the half-life of the reaction?
