Sodium carbonate, Na2CO3(s), can be prepared by heating sodium bicarbonate, NaHCO3(s).

2NaHCO3(s) Na2CO3(s) + CO2(g) + H2O(g) Kp = 0.23 at 100ºC

If a sample of NaHCO3 is placed in an evacuated flask and allowed to achieve equilibrium at 100ºC, what will the total gas pressure be?

• chemistry -

Kp = 0.23 = pCO2*pH2O
pCO2 = pH2O
p = sqrt(0.23) = ?
pCO2 + pH2PO = ?
