Use the data attached to estimate the value of K_eff at very high total pressure and the value of K_1 mol^-1 s^-1.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com July 23, 2018, 12:19 am ad1c9bdddf
Taking [M] as an inert gas molecule, we can view the pressure, P, as giving the value of [M].
From the given equation, keff = k1k2[M] / (k2 + k-1[M]) or, rearranged;
1/keff = 1/k1[M] + ...
The solution breaks the problem down into bitesized chunks and goes through it using words and calculations to explain and reach the answer of how to estimate the required K_eff when given the table of relevant data and steady-state approximation.
