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.
Because, change in moles,
delta(n_gas) = 2 - (1) = 1
Temperature T = 700+273 = 973 K
Kc = 1.52
Kp = Kc*(RT)^delta(n_gas) = Kc*R*T ...
This solution is provided in 115 words. It uses brief calculations and equations to find equilibrium partial pressure.
