Calculate the equilibrium concentration of each species using an ICE chart and the Kc expression for the reaction
Step 1. Setup the ICE chart
For the reaction, Kc = 255 at 1000 K.
CO(g) + Cl2(g) → COCl2(g)
If a reaction mixture initially contains a CO concentration of 0.1550 M and a Cl2 concentration of 0.171 M at 1000 K.
1. What is the equilibrium concentration of CO at 1000 K?
2. What is the equilibrium concentration of Cl 2 at 1000 K?
3. What is the equilibrium concentration of COCl 2 at 1000 K?
