# Problem: Consider the generic reaction: 2 A(g) + B(g) → 2 C(g) .If a flask initially contains 1.6 atm of A and 1.6 atm of B, what will be the pressure in the flask if the reaction proceeds to completion? (Assume constant volume and temperature.)

###### FREE Expert Solution

Reaction: 2 A(g) + B(g) → 2 C(g)

PA = 1.6 atm

PB = 1.6 atm

2 moles of A react with 1 mole of B → B is the limiting reactant
