For question 11.83: Calculate the equilibrium constant at 25 C and at
150 C for each of the following reactions, using data available in Appendix 2A:
(a) NH4Cl(s) <--> NH3(g) + HCl(g)
(b) H2(g) + D2O(l) <--> D2(g) + H2O(l)
Is the calculation different when the temperature is at 150 other than the value of T changing? I am using the equation delta G=-RTlnK and I am getting the right answers when calculating K at 25 degrees but when I do the same calculation using 150 degrees I am getting wrong answers.

You should be able to use the same equation and values and just change T to get the right answer. Just make sure you use Kelvin!

This isn't what the solution manual says? Can someone explain how to approach this problem?

For 298K, you can use the equation to find the K value. For 423K, use the equation
