Reaction: Cl2(g) + 3F2(g) → 2ClF3(g)
Calculate moles of each reactant:
Ideal gas equation:
nCl2 = 0.0363 mol Cl2
nF2 = 0.0844 mol F2
Mole to mole comparison:
Chlorine gas reacts with fluorine gas to form chlorine trifluoride.
Cl2(g) + 3F2(g) → 2ClF3(g)
A 2.00 L reaction vessel, initially at 298 K, contains chlorine gas at a partial pressure of 337 mmHg and fluorine gas at a partial pressure of 784 mmHg .
a. What is the pressure of ClF3 in the reaction vessel after the reaction?
b. What is the total pressure in the reaction vessel after the reaction?
