FREE Expert Solution

We are given the following reaction:

2 COF2(g) ⇌ CO2(g) + CF4(g)           Kp at 298 K: 2.2×106

A. We are asked to calculate Kp for the reaction

4 COF2(g) ⇌ 2 CO2(g) + 2 CF4(g)

Recall: Reversing a reaction gives us the reciprocal of K, while multiplying a reaction by a value makes it the power for K. The reaction was multiplied by 2, hence we have:

(Kp)n=(2.2×106)2=4.84×1012
