Equilibrium constant

Consider the reaction:
SO2Cl2(g)⇌SO2(g)+Cl2(g)
A solution is made containing initial [SO2Cl2]= 0.022M . At equilibrium, [Cl2]= 1.7×10−2M
Calculate the value of the equilibrium constant.

  1. ..........SO2Cl2 ==> SO2 + Cl2
    I.........0.022......0......0
    C.........-x.........x......x
    E.......0.022-x......x......x

    The problems tell you that (Cl2) = x = 1.7E-2.

    Substitute into Kc expression and calculate Kc
