Problem: A sample of solid ammonium chloride was placed in an evacuated container and then heated so that it decomposed to ammonia gas and hydrogen chloride gas. After heating, the total pressure in the container was found to be 4.4 atm. Calculate Kp at this temperature for the decomposition reactionNH4Cl(s) ⇌ NH3(g) + HCl(g)
