Determine Kc for the following reaction:
1/2N2(g) + 1/2O2(g)+ 1/2Br(g) <-> NOBr(g)

from the following information (at 298K)

2No(g) <-> N2(g) + O2(g) Kc = 2.1x10^30

NO(g) + 1/2Br2(g) <-> NOBr(g) Kc = 1.4

  1. Take equn 1, divide by 2, and reverse it. That makes Kc of 2.1E30 = k' [1/(sqrt 2.1E30)]. That is sqrt because you took 1/2 the equation and the reciprocal because you reversed it.
    Then add eqn 2 and check to see that it is the equation you want. K for the final rxn is k'*k2 = 1.4/(sqrt 2.1E30) = ??

  2. Thank you so much. I got 9.7 x 10^-16. The answer is correct. I was just confused because why did we only substitute the k values for 2 compounds in the equation rather then all 4?

    Pure nitrosyl bromide, NOBr at 0.762 M is placed into a sealed vessel and heated up to 400 K. When the system reaches equilibrium, it is found that 65.1% of the nitrosyl bromide has decomposed to nitrogen monoxide and bromine.
