6N.1 part B

Postby Skyllar Kuppinger 1F » Sun Mar 01, 2020 2:42 am

I got part A right but part B wrong even tho I did them the exact same way. The problem said to find K. The book says the answer is 1x10^4 but I got 107. Will someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong

The answer in the book is a typo! In the solutions manual, they put that n = 2 moles even though it should only be 1 mole of electrons. By using 1 mole, you get the correct answer of K = 1 x 102 rather than K = 1 x 104! Hope this helps!

Thank you so much!!! I lost my solutions manual so I didn't notice that !!
