Unformatted text preview: value of the right side of the equation by half. Since both sides are equal, it must decrease the temperature by half. We are told in the problem that conditions are at STP, which means T = 273 K, or 0 ˚C. 273K/2 = 136.5K Since 136 K is not an option, we can convert this to ˚C, and see if that is an option. We started with 0 ˚C, and reduced this number by 136K. That is the same as reducing by 136 ˚C. So the answer in ˚C is -136˚C....
