Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by David on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 9:55pm.

The equilibrium constant Kc for the following reaction is equal to 0.20 at 250C. Calculate the equilibrium constant Kp for the reverse reaction at the same temperature.
COCl2 (g) = CO (g) + Cl2 (g)

I'm sorry.. English is a second language for me. After solving for K'c and getting the equation Kp = K'c(RT)^delta n... When it says calculate Kp for the reverse reaction.. is it assuming that COCl2 = CO + Cl2 is already in that reverse equation given? or do I have to switch it in my solution and make it CO + Cl2 = COCl2 making the Delta n = -1 instead of 1.. Please help me clarify!
