Problem

For the past 10 years, the unsaturated hydrocarbon 1,3-butadiene (CH2 = CH – CH = CH2 ) has ranked 38th among the top 50 industrial chemicals. It is used primarily for the manufacture of synthetic rubber. An isomer exists also as cyclobutene:

The isomerization of cyclobutene to butadiene is first-order and the rate constant has been measured as 2.0 × 10−4 s −1 at 150 °C in a 0.53-L flask. Determine the partial pressure of cyclobutene and its concentration after 30.0 minutes if an isomerization reaction is carried out at 150 °C with an initial pressure of 55 torr.
