NO(g) + 1/2 O2 (g) ⇌ NO2(g)
Step 1: Calculate for ΔG˚rxn:
We also need to convert ΔG˚rxn from kJ/mol to J/ mol so our units remain consistent.
ΔG˚rxn = –35600 J/mol
Step 2: Calculate K:
R = 8.314 J/mol • K
T = 298 K
Solving for K:
Calculate K at 298 K for the following reaction: NO(g) + 1/2 O2 (g) ⇌ NO2(g)
ΔG (kJ/mol) for the following:
NO(g) 86.60, NO2(g) 51, O2(g) 0 (answer in scientific notation)
