Question: Sulfuryl chloride SO2Cl2 decomposes to sulfur dioxide SO2 and chlorine

Sulfuryl chloride (SO2Cl2) decomposes to sulfur dioxide (SO2) and chlorine (Cl2) by reaction in the gas phase. The following data were obtained when a sample containing 5.00 × 10-2 mole of sulfuryl chloride was heated to 600 K + 1 K in a 5.00 × 1021 L container.
Define the rate as 2d[SO2Cl2]/dt.
a. Determine the value of the rate constant for the decomposition of sulfuryl chloride at 600 K.
b. What is the half- life of the reaction?
c. What would be the pressure in the vessel after 0.500 h and after 12.0 h?
d. What fraction of the sulfuryl chloride remains after 20.0 h?
