Homework Help: Chemistry Question!!

Posted by Trixie on Friday, February 19, 2010 at 7:48pm.

When 1.00 g of gaseous I2 is heated to 1000. K in a 1.00 L sealed container, the resulting equilibrium mixture contains 0.830 g of I2. Calculate Kc for the dissociation equilibrium below.
I2 <--> 2 I

What I did was converted the initial I2 into moles then molarity since it is just over 1 L (.00394 M) then I found the molarity of I by subtracting .830 from 1 and converting first to moles (.00134 M of I) I then set up Kc= [.00134 M of I]^2/ [.00394 M of I2] which i found to be .00045...but it's incorrect. I'm not sure what I am missing...
