Step 1: Initial Partial Pressure of N2, H2
molar mass N2: 2 x 14.00 g/mol = 28.00 g/mol
molar mass H2: 2 x 1.01 g/mol = 2.02 g/mol
PN2 = 13.49 atm
PH2 = 45.65 atm
Step 2: ICE Chart
Step 3: Kp expression
Ammonia can be synthesized according to the following reaction: N 2(g) + 3H2(g) ⇌ 2NH3(g); Kp = 5.3 x 10–5 at 725 K
A 200.0-L reaction container initially contains 1.27 kg of N2 and 0.310 kg of H2 at 725 K. Assuming ideal gas behavior, calculate the mass of NH3 (in g) present in the reaction mixture at equilibrium.
