FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to calculate the Kp for the following reaction: 

1/2 Cl2(g) ) ⇌ Cl(g)

We're given the reaction:       Cl2(g) ⇌ 2 Cl(g)              Kp = 1,1317  


To calculate the Kp of the reaction equation, we’re going to use Hess’s Law. We’re going to manipulate the reactions with given Kc value to get the reaction equation with the unknown Kp.
