Problem 5I.13

Postby Morgan Carrington 2H » Wed Jan 22, 2020 11:35 pm

The answer to the question states that the equilibrium of Cl2 is essentially unchanged and then solves the problem by doing 2 * (5.5*10-6). Can someone explain where they found the 5.5*10-6 and why it is multiplied by 2?

5.5*10^-6 is the value you get for x when you solve for the change in concentration using the equilibrium constant and it's multiplied by 2 because of the stoichiometric ratios in the equation.
