  1. I'm assuming a closed system of some volume I'll call L.
    .................N2 + O2 ==> 2NO
    I.............5.88.....16.2...........0
    C..............?.........?...............?
    E..............?..........?..............11.28

    So ? for 2NO = 11.28. Then 11.28/2 = 5.64 mols O2 and 5.64 mols N2 were used and the table can be redone this way.
    .................N2 + O2 ==> 2NO
    I.............5.88.....16.2...........0
    C.........-.5.64.....-5.64........11.28
    E..........0.240.....10.56.......11.28

    Do you want Kc. Note that no volume is available so mols/L can't be calculated; however, the volume, whatever it is, cancels in the calculation. Therefore, write the Kc expression, substitute thre E values in mols, and solve for Kc. To be complete, I would substitute 11.28/L, 0.240/L, and 10.56/L for the molarities of each component. Post your work if you get stuck.
