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 n Cl 2 = n Cl 2 ,0 n COCl 2 = n COCl 2 ,0 + 7.0 lb moles = n CO ,0 3.0 lb moles = n Cl 2 ,0 10.0 lb moles = + What Extent of rxn relationships can I write?
