Gas Reaction

Step by Step Explanation

Ethylene, C2H4, will react with hydrogen gas under appropriate conditions to form ethane, C2H6. A 10.0-liter vessel is charged with 1.5 atm of hydrogen and 1.0 atm of ethylene at 25°C. The reaction is allowed to proceed to completion. Determine the total pressure in the vessel at 25° at the completion of the reaction.
