Hw #35b Solving for Equilibrium Constant

Postby Shannon Han 2B » Tue Feb 03, 2015 10:32 pm

The homework problem #35b was explained on the solutions manual. The question asks to find the equilibrium constant and I did the exact same thing as the correct solutions manual. I did ln K = 1(0.12) / 0.02569 but I got K=107, not K = 10^12. Is the correction to the solutions manual error wrong too?

I got what you got as well. I think it may just be a typo in the corrected solutions, as it should be 1x10^2, not 1x10^12.

For this question I got 1.1x10^2 because the voltage has two digits in the mantissa. Am I wrong?

I got 107 as well for this question.
