Homework Help: Chemistry/Equilibrium calculations

Posted by Mary on Saturday, August 16, 2008 at 7:59am.

At 1200 K, the approximate temperature of vehicle exhaust gases, Kp for the reaction 2CO2(g)-> <- 2CO(g)+ O2(g)

is about 1 E-13. Assuming that the exhaust gas (total pressure 1 bar) contains 0.2% CO, 12% CO2 and 3% O2 by volume, is the system at equilibrium with respect to the reaction? Based on your conclusion, would the CO concentration in the exhaust be decreased or increased by a catalyst that speeds up the reaction above?

Thanks a million! :-)
