Solution: The gas arsine, AsH3, decomposes as follows:2AsH3(g) ⇌ 2As(s) + 3H2(g)In an experiment at a certain temperature, pure AsH 3(g) was placed in an empty, rigid, sealed flask at a pressure of 392.0 torr.

Problem

The gas arsine, AsH3, decomposes as follows:

2AsH3(g) ⇌ 2As(s) + 3H2(g)

In an experiment at a certain temperature, pure AsH 3(g) was placed in an empty, rigid, sealed flask at a pressure of 392.0 torr. After 48 hours the pressure in the flask was observed to be constant at 488.0 torr.

b. Calculate Kp for this reaction.
