Manipulations that can be done to a reaction and its Kp
▪ multiply a reaction by a number → raise Kp by that number
▪ diving the reaction by a number (same as multiplying by a fraction) → raise Kp by that fraction
Example: dividing the reaction by 2 = multiplying the reaction by ½ → raise Kp by ½
▪ reversing a reaction → get the reciprocal of Kp (1/Kp)
N2(g) + 3H2(g) ⇌ 2NH3(g). K = 1.3 x 10 -2
At a given temperature, K = 1.3 x 10 -2 for the reaction
N2(g) + 3H2(g) ⇌ 2NH3(g)
Calculate values of K for the following reactions at this temperature.
c. NH3(g) ⇌ 1/2 N2(g) + 3/2 H2(g)
