Columbus State

CO(g) + 2H2(g) ↔ CH3OH(g) Kc=14.5 (500K)
a. In which direction will the reaction proceed if the reaction vessel contains 0.500 atm CO, 0.500 atm H2, and 0.500 atm CH3OH? Show your calculations for full credit. Remember that Q and K both have to be calculated with either concentration or pressure so that the comparison between Q and K is valid.

  1. I've never heard of a class called "Columbus State" -- you'd get help faster if you follow directions.

  2. I would have answered much faster if I had seen "chemistry" posted. Instead Writeacher did you a favor and corrected the heading or I never would have looked at "columbus State".
    The easy way to do this is to change Kc to Kp. Kp = Kc(RT)^delta n.
    Then run a Q rxn for it.Then compare Kp with Qp. I can help further if you need it.
