We are being asked to calculate the reaction quotient, Q:
The formula for Q is:
Depending on if Q is greater than or less than K our reaction will shift to attain equilibrium by reaching the equilibrium constant K:
Consider the following reaction:
2HF (g) ⇌ H2 (g) + F2(g) (Kc = 1.00 × 10–2)
Given that 1.00 mol of HF(g), 0.371 mol of H2(g), and 0.750 mol of F2(g) are mixed in a 5.00-L flask, determine the reaction quotient, Q.
A) Q = 0.0696
B) Q = 0.278
C) Q = 0.0557
D) Q = 2.12
E) none of these
