Solution: The system described by the reactionCO(g) + Cl2(g) ⇌ COCl2(g)is at equilibrium at a given temperature when  PCO =0.31 atm , PCl2 = 0.11 atm , and PCOCl2 = 0.59 atm. An additional pressure of Cl2(g) =

Problem

The system described by the reaction

CO(g) + Cl2(g) ⇌ COCl2(g)

is at equilibrium at a given temperature when  PCO =0.31 atm , PCl= 0.11 atm , and PCOCl= 0.59 atm. An additional pressure of Cl2(g) = 0.38 atm is added.

Find the pressure of CO when the system returns to equilibrium.
