Equilibrium Equation with Partial Pressures PCl3(g) +Cl2(g) <-> PCl5(g)?
An equilibrium mixture of PCl5(g), PCl3(g), and Cl2(g) has partial pressures of 217.0 Torr, 13.2 Torr, and 13.2 Torr, respectively. A quantity of Cl2(g) is injected into the mixture, and the total pressure jumps to 263.0 Torr.

The appropriate chemical equation is
PCl3(g) +Cl2(g) <-> PCl5(g)

What are the new Partial Pressures:

PCl3

Cl2

PCl5

I have an answer of
PCl3= 6.2
PCl5= 224

I can't find the answer for Cl2!
please help. I got an answer of 32.8 torr for Cl2 but it is wrong. Thanks.
