For the homework problem 5H.1 part B it contains fractions as the stoichiometric coefficient: 1/2 N2 + 3/2 H2 -> NH3. In the solution manual they placed 41 (this number is K=41 which came from part A) to the power of 1/2 and got 6.4 as the value of K for this equation but I am confused about where you get the 1/2 from. Can someone explain the steps to get to (41)^1/2?
The (b) equation is the original equation of the problem scaled by 1/2. If you multiple an entire equation by a scalar (in this case, 1/2), the K constant changes by being raised to that power (in this case, K=41 is raised to the power 1/2 to get K for the part b equation).
