Solution: At 1200 K, the approximate temperature of automobile exhaust gases (see the figure ), Kp for the reaction 2 CO2 (g) 2 CO(g) + O2 (g) is about 1 10 - 13.Based on your conclusion, would the CO conc

Problem

At 1200 K, the approximate temperature of automobile exhaust gases (see the figure A graph has temperature in kelvin on the x axis, ranging from 0 to 2000 with an interval at 1000. The y axis is kp, ranging from 1 times 10 to the -15 to 1. A curve increases rapidly at lower temperatures and then slows and flattens. The exhaust gas temperature is about 1300 Kelvin and kp of 1 times 10 to the -4 and the cylinder temperature during combustion is about 2400 kelvin at kp of 5 times 10 to the -2.), Kp for the reaction
2 CO2 (g) 2 CO(g) + O2 (g)
is about 1 10 - 13.

Based on your conclusion, would the CO concentration in the exhaust be decreased or increased by a catalyst that speeds up the reaction shown?
