5.39 HW

Postby rachelle1K » Mon Jan 20, 2020 8:20 pm

5.39 states,
In an experiment, 0.020 mol NO2 was introduced into a flask of volume 1.00 L and the reaction 2 NO2(g) ∆ N2O4(g) was allowed to come to equilibrium at 298 K. (a) Using information in Table 5E.2, calculate the equilibrium concentrations of the two gases. (b) The volume of the flask is reduced to half its original value. Calculate the new equilibrium concentrations of the gases.

I was wondering how to calculate the equilibrium concentration? I took the inverse of Kc given in the table but my answers are not adding up. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

It is an ice box question, so you need to find x. From the table, the information you need to find is Kc to calculate X

I'm having the same problem. In the solution manual it says that kc= 1/6.1x10^-3. But according to the table, it should definitely be 1/6.1x10^23. But it seems that we are doing the process correctly. There must be an error somewhere, perhaps the value in the table is a typo or the value in the solution manual is a typo. either way, I would not worry about it.
