I need help. I have no clue how to find this.
A flask is charged with 1.680 atm of N2O4(g) and 1.220 atm of NO2(g) at 25 degrees celcius. The equilibrium reaction is
N2O4 <-> 2 NO2
After equilibrium is reached, the partial pressure of NO2 is 0.550
(a) What is the equilibrium partial pressure of N2O4?
(b) Calculate the Kp for the reaction
I have tried
1.22^2/ 1.680 = 0.550^2/x
but the Webassign said it was wrong. I have also tried
1.220^2/1.680 = 0.886
0.55^2/x = 0.886
Note the correct spelling of Celsius.
.........N2O4 <-> 2NO2
The problem tells you that 2p = 0.550. You can calculate p from that.
That allows you to evaluate 1.680-p
Then substitute these values into the Kp expression and evaluate Kp.
