grignard reagent are very reactive, they abstract H atom from any source of proton and forms alkanes.


to prepare ethane u can take CH3CH2MgCl +  H2O or dil HCl ------> CH3CH3

please see attachment first then read this remaining question if the second step is rate determining step then the order od rxⁿ wrt NO is
dear friend here the second step is the rate determining step or the slowest step. Here the slowest step is the second step.So the rate will depend on the concentration of 1 power of NO...

yes you are correct but i missed one step i told that rate =k[NOBr2][NO] But rate of formation of NOBr2=k1[NO][Br2] therefore,rate=kk1[NO]^2[Br2] Thus the rate with respect to NO will be 2...
