Solution: At 400 K oxalic acid decomposes according to the reaction: H2C2O4(g) → CO2(g) + HCOOH(g). In three separate experiments, the initial pressure of oxalic acid and final total pressure after 20,000 s is

Problem

At 400 K oxalic acid decomposes according to the reaction: H2C2O4(g) → CO2(g) + HCOOH(g). In three separate experiments, the initial pressure of oxalic acid and final total pressure after 20,000 s is measured.
