Solution Summary

This solution looks at the equilibrium partial pressure of a reaction in a vessel.

Solution Preview

Assume that the reaction starts out with 1 mole of NO2. This assumption can be made since the ratio of the end products to initial product is not influenced by the quantity of initial product. Therefore the partial pressure (a ratio) will not be ...
