Calculating equilibrium constant at 25°C
Calculate the equilibrium constant of the following reaction at 25°C from standard potential data (available in emf (electromotive force tables) in any General Chemistry book; the library has many.)
Sn(s) + 2 AgCl(s)-->2 Ag(s)+ SnCl2(aq)
For the hypothetical chemical reaction
a A + b B c C + d D
the equilibrium constant is defined as
Kc = [C]c [D]d / [A]a [B]b
The notation [A] signifies the molar ...
This solution shows how to calculate the equilibrium constant using an emf table.
