15. Into a 5.0 liter flask was placed 35.7 g of PCI5 . The flask and contents were heated to 250 0 C, and then held at temperature until the following equilibrium was established:
PcI5 (g)< > Pc13 (g) + Cl2 (g)

It was then shown by analysis that 875 g of Cl2 was pesent in the equilibrium mixture. Calculate K~. (This will be a numerical calculation, not simply the equilibrium expression.)

1 6. Given that K1 for acetic acid is 1 .8 X 10-5, calculate the percent ionization of 0.5 M acetic acid.

1 7. Calculate the concentration of Hydrogen ions in a solution that is 0.1 M with respect to acetic acid and 0.2 M with respect to NaC2H3O2. Use the K1 for acetic acid listed in problem 16. (Hint: In order to work this problem you will need to remember how salts compared to weak acids are relatively ionized.)

18. The above problem is respresentative of what type of system?

Acid-Base Equilibria

Hey there. I am having trouble with this question.

Calculate the percent ionization of propionic acid (C2H5COOH) in solutions of each of the following concentrations:
a) 0.250 M
b) 0.0800 M
c) 0.0200 M
** Ka = 1.3 x 10 ^ -5

Could you please show the work. And no power points please.

Thanks in advance!
