Homework Help: AP Chemistry

Given: N2O4 (g) « 2NO2 (g) @ 25 degrees celcius, Kc is 5.84 x 10^-3.

(A) Calculate the equilibrium concentrations of both gases when 4.00 grams of N2O4 is placed in a 2.00 L flask at 25 degrees celcius.

(B) What will be the new equilibrium concentrations if the volume of the system is suddenly increased to 3.00 L at 25 degrees celcius.

Would you be able to find the moles of N2O4 by taking 4.0g/92.02 g/mol. Then in order to find mol NO2 can you just multiple mol N2O4 by 2 because the equation is 2:1. Then divide both by by liters to get their concentrations.

Or do you have to Calculate the number of moles of N2O4 and hence the concentration (C) in moles/L. Then say that at equilibrium let the concentration of NO2=x so Kc=[NO2]^2/[N2O4] Kc=(x)^2/(C-x)= 5.84x10^-3 we know C so solve for x

If it is the second way can you please guide me on how to solve for X
