$$NO \longrightarrow N_2O + NO_2$$

$$\text{Rate} = k[NO]^2$$

Based on the above unbalanced reaction in the gas phase with corresponding rate law, which of the following is TRUE?


The reaction is classified as a simple unimolecular elementary reaction since the rate law matches the reaction.


The reaction occurs in more than one elementary step because the rate law does not match the stoichiometry of the reaction.


The overall rate law cannot be determined without the use of the correct catalyst and identification of alternate pathways.


There are no intermediates formed during the reaction due to the simple, one-step nature of the reaction.
