Unformatted text preview: 17.32 First, determine n for the reaction and then calculate Kp using Kp = Kc a) n = Number of product gas moles - Number of reactant gas moles = 2 - 2 = 0 b) n = Number of product gas moles - Number of reactant gas moles = 2 - 3 = -1 17.33 When Q < K, the reaction proceeds to the right to form more products. The reaction quotient and equilibrium constant are determined by [products] / [reactants]. For Q to increase and reach the value of K, the concentration of products (numerator) must increase in relation to the concentration of reactants (denominator). 17.34 Reactant and product concentrations are constant over time. The forward reaction rate equals the reverse reaction rate. The reaction quotient equals the equilibrium constant: Q = K....
