At T = 250 °C the
- PCl5(g) PCl3(g) + Cl2(g)
has an equilibrium constant in terms of pressures Kp = 2.15.
(a) Suppose the initial partial pressure of PCl5 is 0.319 atm, and PPCl3 = PCl2 = 0.944 atm. Calculate the reaction quotient Qp and state whether the reaction proceeds to the right or to the left as equilibrium is approached.
Reaction proceeds to the _______rightleft.
(b) Calculate the partial pressures at equilibrium.
PPCl5 = atm
PPCl3 = atm
PCl2 = atm
(c) If the volume of the system is then decreased, will there be net formation or net dissociation of PCl5?
There will be net _________formationdissociation.
