Starting with o.3700 mol CO (g) and 5.400*10^-2 COCl2 (g), in a 3 liter flask at 668 K, how many moles of Cl2 will be present?

CO + Cl2 =++COCL2

KC = 1.2*10^3 at 668 K

  • chemistry -

    How many moles of Cl2 will be present WHEN? Today? tomorrow? next week? perhaps you mean at equilibrium?
    CO + Cl2==> COCl2

    Set up an ICE chart.
    CO = 0.37/3 = 0.123
    Cl2 = 0.054/3 = 0.018
    COCl2 = 0

    COCl2 = +x
    CO = -x
    Cl2 = -x

    CO = 0.123-x
    Cl2 = 0.018-x
    COCl2 = x

    Kc = (COCl2)^2/(CO)(Cl2)
    Substitute the equilibrium concns above into Ka expression and solve for x.
