Overall Reaction Rate using Steady-State Approximation

A proposed mechanism for the reaction

is given by

Apply the steady-state approximation to show that the overall reaction rate is

In the process you should evaluate k in terms of k1, k−1, k2, and k3.


This is the problem 2.25 of the book “Chemical Kinetics and Reaction Dynamics, written by Paul L. Houston”.
