11.19 and 11.83

Postby Dahriel Aron 3A » Wed Feb 03, 2016 5:42 pm

both 11.19 and 11.83 ask to calculate the equilibrium constant k for chemical equations, however 19 just simply asks to calculat k at 25 degrees celsius and 83 asks to calculate k at 25 and at 150 degrees celsius. However, in 83 to solve this problem it uses delta G= delta h - T delta S, and for 83 and then plugs that value in for delta G in the equation delta G = -RTln k, while 19 only uses the equation delta G = -rtlnk. I was wondering why these 2 siimilar problems use different methods to solve for k, and if its just because 83 asks for k at 2 different temps while 19 only asks for k at one temp?

Since you are no longer at standard conditions, you do not know the delta G value in 83. Since delta H and delta S are relatively constant over temperature ranges, you can use those to solve for delta G at 150 degress. Then you can use the delta G= -RTlnK equation to solve for K.

Do you still need to use deltaH and deltaS values to find the equilibrium constant if the initial temperature is 298K?

How do you solve for 11.19?
