🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Giblin's class at CSUF.

Solution: A mixture initially contains A, B, and C in the following concentrations: [A] = 0.350 M, [B] = 1.40 M, and [C] = 0.700 M. The following reaction occurs and equilibrium is established: A + 2B ⇌ C At equilibrium, [A] = 0.170 M and [C] = 0.880 M. Calculate the value of the equilibrium constant, Kc. Express your answer numerically.

Problem

A mixture initially contains A, B, and C in the following concentrations: [A] = 0.350 M, [B] = 1.40 M, and [C] = 0.700 M. The following reaction occurs and equilibrium is established: 

A + 2B ⇌ C 

At equilibrium, [A] = 0.170 M and [C] = 0.880 M. Calculate the value of the equilibrium constant, Kc

Express your answer numerically.


Solution

We are being asked to calculate the equilibrium constant, Kc for the given equilibrium reaction:

A + 2B  C


When dealing with equilibrium and Kc:

Kc → equilibrium units are in molarity 
Kc is an equilibrium expression:

Kc=productsreactants

only aqueous and gaseous species are included in the equilibrium expression
▪ the coefficient of each compound in the reaction equation will be the exponent of the concentrations in the equilibrium expression
