Fall 2015 Quiz 3 #5

Postby Jasminemay Barcelon 2G » Sat Nov 28, 2015 10:22 pm

This question was regarding the second part of #5 where it states that you find in a publication that a researcher in China has studied the same reaction at the same temperature, but she wrote the reaction in the form NH3(g) <-> N2(g) + 3H2(g). The original equation being N2(g) + 3H2(g) <-> NH3(g). The question then asks if the researcher will have the same published value of K as what you have calculated? If they are not the same, what value of K do you expect to find in her publication?
I thought it would be the reciprocal of the K in the original equation, but I was told that it was incorrect. So I was wondering if someone could explain the correct answer? Thank you!

What?! That's wrong? Who said that? Was it a T.A.?
