Determine the partial pressure of A and B.
Recall that the partial pressure of a gas (PGas) in a mixture is given by:
χGas = mole fraction of the gas
Ptotal = total pressure of the gas mixture
Assuming the volume fraction is equal to the mole fraction.
χA = 0.4324
χB = 0.5675
Determine the partial pressure of A and B:
The following reaction occurs in a closed container:
A(g) + 2 B(g) → 2 C(g)
A reaction mixture initially contains 1.6 L of A and 2.1 L of B.
Assuming that the volume and temperature of the reaction mixture remain constant, what is the percent change in pressure if the reaction goes to completion?
