Question 11.13

Postby Josh Clark 1J » Thu Nov 10, 2016 1:50 pm

Write the reaction quotient Q for
(a) 2BCl3(g) + 3H2O(l) ---> NH3(g) + 3HOCl(aq)

I don't understand how the answer comes out to be 1/P(BCl3)2

The reaction quotient (Q) for that equation would be (P(NH3)*P(HOCL)^3)/(P(BCl3)^2). But the equation given in Question 11.13 (a) is actually 2BCl3(g) + 2Hg(l)>B2Cl4(s) + Hg2Cl2(s) where the Q would be 1/P(BCl3)^2.
