The heterogeneous equilibrium process

C(s) + CO2(g) f/r 2 CO(g)

At 700 deg. C. the total pressure in this system is 4.71 atem. The equilibrium constant is 1.52, calculate the equilibrium partial pressures of CO2 and CO.

PCO2=? atm

PCO=? atm

#### Solution Preview

Because, change in moles,

delta(n_gas) = 2 - (1) = 1

Temperature T = 700+273 = 973 K

Kc = 1.52

Because,

Kp = Kc*(RT)^delta(n_gas) = Kc*R*T ...
