Problem

At 700 K, the reaction below has a Kp value of 54. An equilibrium mixture at this
temperature was found to contain 1.84 atm of I2 and 4.24 atm of HI. Calculate the equilibrium pressure of H2.

H2(g) + I2(g) <=> 2 HI(g).  Enter answer to 2 decimal places

A. 0.18 atm
B. 0.04 atm
C. 5.53 atm
D. 0.30 atm
E. 0.81 atm

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the equilibrium concentration of H2 at 700 K for the following reaction:

H2(g) + I2(g)  2 HI(g)


Recall that the equilibrium constant is the ratio of the products and reactants

We use Kp when dealing with pressure and Kc when dealing with concentration:


Kp=PproductsPreactants     Kc=[products][reactants]


Note that solid and liquid compounds are ignored in the equilibrium expression.
