Problem Details

For the generic reaction, A(g) ⇌ B(g), consider each value of K and initial concentration of A. For which set will the x is small approximation most likely apply?
(a) K = 1.0 x 10–5; [A] = 0.250 M
(b) K = 1.0 x 10–5; [A] = 0.250 M
(c) K = 1.0 x 10–5; [A] = 0.00250 M
(d) K = 1.0 x 10–5; [A] = 0.00250 M
