Fluorine and krypton react to form binary compounds when a mixture of the two gases is heated to 500C in a nickel reaction vessel. A 100mL nickel container is filled with fluorin and krypton to partial pressures of 1.24 atm and 10.10 atm, respectively at a room temperature of 20 C. The reaction vessel is heated to 500 C and then cooled to a temperature at which F2 is a gas and krypton fluorides are nonvolatile solids. The remaining F2 gas is transferred to another 100mL nickel container where the pressure of F2 at 20C is 7.2 atm. Assuming all the krypton has reacted, what is the formula of the product?

  1. Check your post. There is something wrong with these numbers or if the numbers are ok you may have transposed the ingredients.

  2. don't have the answer but to help those trying to help, it should be 10.10 atm for Fluorine, and 1.24 atm for Krypton.

  3. I thought that was what happened. The numbers were transposed.
