ME 501 Chemical Equilibrium Example Problem A rigid pressure vessel with a volume of 1 m 3 contains 0.1 kmols of diatomic oxygen (O 2 ) at 300K. The gas is heated to 3000 K. How many O-atoms (monatomic oxygen) does the pressure vessel contain at 3000 K, and what is the assembly pressure in Pascals? Hint: Consider the reaction OO 2 2 . Also, remember that P N k T B   Assume that diatomic oxygen is a rigid rotator and harmonic oscillator, neglect any ionization, and use the following characteristic temperature and dissociation energy data:
