5.35 Part b

Postby Justin Vayakone 1C » Tue Jan 07, 2020 5:54 pm

This is the answer to part b: (in attachment). I understand the arrangement of the equilibrium constant and where the values (5, 10, and 18) come from, but I don't understand why these values are over 100. Is it because of units? The graph uses P/pKa, but what does that mean? Pressure per kiloPascal?

Yes, the division of each factor by 100 is to convert from P/kPa to bar.

I believe the pressure is given in kilopascals and dividing by 100 is to convert the units to bars (since 1 bar= 100 kPa).
