At 25 degrees Celsius, the decomposition of dinitrogen tetraoxide has an equilibrium constant(Kp) of 0.144. If the equilibrium pressure of nitrogen dioxide is 0.298 atm, what is the pressure of dinitrogen tetraoxide?

a. 2.07atm
b. 0.162atm
c. 0.617atm
d. 0.0128atm

Solution Summary

This solution uses the reaction of nitrogen tetraoxide and nitrogen dioxide to find pressure using and rearranging an equilibrium constant equation.
