    The purpose of this activity is to provide you with an authentic problem that faces many scientists, decision-makers and citizens everyday. How different temperatures effect reactions and decompositions is of interest to scientists in predicting a wide range of outcomes for many events.

    In this scenario you will have the opportunity to learn about decomposition of Nitrogen Pentoxide, the effects of temperature and original concentrations of reactants.

    Before you begin trying out different situations on the run the model page, it is important that you have read enough information about smog photochemistry on the other pages to understand what you are modeling.
