So we get the expression: 22 2 2 1 H pro H pro a iso iso aa y y X K P aX y == = When there is zero products, the equilibrium fraction of isopropyl alcohol is:

Problem 2 We need the following: Now, we know that if ideal and T is constant, we get: 2 2 1 1 2 1 2 1 1 1 2 2 2 1 1 1 2 2 n P n P n V P n V P n V P n V P = = = but, the pressures can be calculated from the equilibrium constant, and since the equilibrium constant is only a function of temperature, the pressures will be the same. Essentially, if the volume is doubled, then the oxalate will decompose more. From equilibrium, we know that:
CO a P K = And since we know that it is an ideal gas, we have: V RT n P K CO CO a = = Now, we can solve for the number of moles of CO as a function of volume: RT V K n a CO = Now, if the volume is increased after this happens (calcium oxalate fully decomposes), nothing will happen because the equilibrium constant is a function of temperature only. Since we are at constant temperature, the increase in volume would not affect the equilibrium constant. #Problem 3: Write the number of moles of Ca oxalate as a function of V in problem 13.2 and establish the volume at which the Ca oxalate completely decomposed as a function of the initial amount. What happens if the volume is increased after that value?
