HW Problem 5.57

Postby Gisela F Ramirez 2H » Fri Feb 22, 2019 9:30 pm

C(s) + H2O(g) <---> CO(g) + H2(g)
a. Evaluate K at 900K given that the Gibbs Free Energy of formation for CO and H20 at 900K are -191.28 kJ/mol and -198.09 kJ/mol respectively

what equation would I use to find K?

By finding the gibbs free energy change through summation of products gibbs free energy minus summation of reactants gibbs free energy, we can now set this value equal to = -RT lnK and solve
