For example, for the natural decomposition of nitrogen pentoxide, the rate expression is v = -d[N2O5]/dt = k1[N2O5]. Thus, this is a first-order reaction. A reaction involving two different compounds is often a second-order reaction (but not necessarily so). Pseudo-first-order reactions are multiorder reactions in which one of the reactants is in substoichiometric amounts. Compare: molecularity.

Q. Is there something I could do in order to prevent headaches? I have headaches often and somebody told me that there're steps to be taken in order to prevent headaches so often... Please help...

A. I just read your question on headaches. I have them occasionally as well. I don't like to take over the counter medication for headaches, so I rely on herbal supplemnts. You are ayoung man so I'm assuming you are very healthy. This herbal supplement shouldn't hurt you. It's very safe. I take at least 2 Valerian root capsules before going to bed. It relaxes your body abd it helps to eliminate headeaches.It also lowers the blood pressure which can sometimes cause headaches. Be sure you rule out any oraganic problems which can also cause headaches. You can find Valerian root at any health food/ organic markets.Also look at your diet MSG in food gives me headaches as well. I can always tell if it's present in foods right after I eat something processed. I stick with whole foods and I do yoga which helps as well. Let me know how if this works.
