The reaction between H2 and Br2 to form HBr in the presence of light is consistent with the following mechanism:
Br2 → 2Br*
Br* + H2 → HBr + H*
H* + Br2 → HBr + Br*
2 Br* → Br2
Derive a rate law for the overall reaction using the pseudo steady state hypothesis.
The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and it is about hydrogen and bromine reaction in the presence of light. The solution clearly explains the mechanism in much detail.
