Problem: A Student ran the following reaction in the laboratory at 502 K:PCl3(g) + Cl2(g) ⇌ PCl5(g)When she introduced 0.199 moles of PCI3(g) and 0.235 moles of Cl2(g) into a 1.00 liter container, she found the equilibrium concentration of Cl2(g) to be 6.84 x 10-2 M. Calculate the equilibrium constant, Kc, she obtained for this reaction.
