Phosgene can be made by the catalytic reaction between CO and chlorine gas in the presence of a carbon catalyst. The chemical reaction is CO + Cl 2 → COCl 2 Suppose that you have measured the reaction products from a given reactor and found that they contain 3.00 lb-moles chlorine, 10.00 lb- moles phosgene, and 7.00 lb-moles CO. Calculate the extent of reaction, and using the value calculated, determine the initial amounts of CO and Cl 2 that were used in the reaction. CO + Cl 2 → COCl 2 CO 7.0 lb-moles Cl 2 3.0 lb-moles COCl 2 10.0 lb-moles CO Cl 2 n CO = n CO ,0 − ζ n Cl 2 = n Cl 2 ,0 − ζ n COCl 2 = n COCl 2 ,0 + ζ 7.0 lb − moles = n CO ,0 − ζ 3.0 lb − moles = n Cl 2 ,0 − ζ 10.0 lb − moles = + ζ What Extent of rxn relationships can I write? Draw a sketch CO + Cl 2 → COCl 2 CO 7.0 lb-moles Cl 2 3.0 lb-moles COCl 2 10.0 lb-moles CO Cl 2 7.0 lb − moles = n CO,0 − 10.0 lb − moles 3.0 lb − moles = n Cl 2 ,0 − 10.0 lb − moles ζ = 10.0 lb − moles n CO,0 =...
