Problem: When gaseous F2 and solid I2 are heated to high temperatures, the I 2 sublimes and gaseous iodine heptafluoride forms. If 350. torr of F2 and 2.50 g of solid I 2 are put into a 2.50-L container at 250. K and the container is heated to 550. K, what is the final pressure (in torr)? What is the partial pressure of I2 gas?
