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.)
