    Consider the following Decomposition Reaction: C5H6O3(g) = C2H6(g) + 3 CO(g)

    When a 5.63g sample of pure C5H6O3(g) was sealed into an otherwise empty 2.50L flask and heated to 200C, the pressure in the flask gradually rose to 1.63 atm and remained at that value. Calculate K for this reaction.
