Problem: In the metallurgical process of refining nickel, the metal is first combined with carbon monoxide to form tetracarbonylnickel. which is a gas at 43°C:Ni(s) + 4CO(g) → Ni(CO)4(g)This reaction separates nickel from other solid impurities. Starting with 67.4 g of Ni, calculate the pressure of Ni(CO)4 in a container of volume 5.95 L. (Assume the above reaction goes to completion.)

Problem Details

In the metallurgical process of refining nickel, the metal is first combined with carbon monoxide to form tetracarbonylnickel. which is a gas at 43°C:

Ni(s) + 4CO(g) → Ni(CO)4(g)

This reaction separates nickel from other solid impurities. Starting with 67.4 g of Ni, calculate the pressure of Ni(CO)4 in a container of volume 5.95 L. (Assume the above reaction goes to completion.)
