Chapter 10 #5

Can someone explain how to do part c for #5?

how did you get the equation k = [mole fraction <alpha> P]^2 /mole fraction <alpha> P

what does mole fraction have to do with K?

To find K you need to first find the partial pressures which can be calculated for each product and reactant by multiplying the respective mole fraction and the total pressure. For example, Px= [(12 mols x)/(17 total mols)](0.1).
Then, you plug those partial pressures into the K equation to find K.
