Problem: Write the equilibrium expression (Kp) for each of the following gas-phase reactions.c. SiH4(g) + 2Cl2(g) ⇌ SiCl4(g) + 2H2(g)

FREE Expert Solution

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


We use Kp when dealing with pressure


Kp=PproductsPreactants     


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