45B Homework #2 (Due 1/31/2012) 1. Problem 2.3 At high temperatures phosphine (PH 3 ) dissociates into phosphorus and hydrogen by the following reaction: 2 4 3 6 4 H P PH + At 800 the rate at which phosphine dissociates is 3 3 6 10 715 . 3 PH PH C dt dC - × - = for t in seconds. The reaction occurs in a constant-volume, 2-L vessel, and the initial concentration of phosphine is 5 kmol/m 3 . (a). If 3 mol of the phosphine reacts, how much phosphorus and hydrogen is produced? (b). Develop expressions for the number of moles of phosphine, phosphorus,

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
