The equilibrium constant, Kp

At 100 degrees celsius, the molarities of dinitrogen tetraoxide and nitrogen dioxide are as follows: [N204]=0.037mol/L and [NO2]=0.12mol/L What is the value of the equilibrium constant Kp?

Solution Preview

[N2O4]=0.037M and [NO2]=0.12M
Kp: is the equilibrium constant and is typically based on pressure. Hence the subscript "p".
M: is ...
