The thermal decomposition reaction of nitrosyl halides is important in tropospheric chemistry. For example, consider the decomposition of NOCl:

2 NOCl\left( g \right)\to 2 NO\left( g \right)+Cl_{2}\left( g \right)The Arrhenius parameters for this reaction are A=1.00×10^{13} M^{-1} s^{-1} and E_{a}=104.0 kJ mol^{-1}. Calculate \Delta H^{\ddagger } and \Delta S^{\ddagger } for this reaction with T=300. K.
