Problem

The thermal decomposition of ethylene occurs during the compound’s transit in pipelines and during the formation of polyethylene. The decomposition reaction is

CH2=CH2(g) ⟶ CH4(g) + C(graphite)

If the decomposition begins at 10°C and 50.0 atm with a gas density of 0.215 g/mL and the temperature increases by 950 K, 

(a) What is the final pressure of the confined gas (ignore the volume of graphite and use the van der Waals equation)?
