Excess mercury is placed in a 5L container which is then evacuated and filled with oxygen to a pressure of 6.23 Atm at 25oC. The container is sealed and heated to 300oC where the equilibrium: 2Hg(l) + O2(g) ⇄ 2HgO(s) is established. At equilibrium, the pressure in the container is 0.089 Atm. What is the equilibrium constant, Kp, for the reaction? a) 26.54 b) 0.089 c) 6.23 d) 11.24 e) There is not enough information to answer this question
