Given the equilibrium system PCL55(g) <---> PCL3(g) + Cl2(g)
k = 12.5 at 60 degrees Celsius. A 1.0-L reaction vessel is analyzed and found to contain 3.2 mol Cl2(g), 1.5 mol PCl3(g) and 2.0 mol PCl5(g). Show that the reaction mixture has not yet reached equilibrium.
This is done the same way as the previous problem. Post your work if you get stuck and explain exactly what you don't understand about the next step.
