Problem #4 on Test #1

Postby Brevin Hensley 1C » Wed Feb 13, 2019 9:42 am

Question: At -100C, Kp =0.13 for the reaction CO2(s) <> CO2(g). What is the equilibrium partial pressure of CO2(g) at -100C?

I would appreciate if someone could explain to me the answer, thank you.

Kp for any reaction is = [products]/[reactants] but you wouldn't include solids or liquids in this eq constant. Because the reactant is a solid, the only thing that affects Kp is the products. Therefore, Kp = [products] = 0.13. This means the [CO2(g)] = 0.13 atm.
