An equilibrium mixture contains N2O4, (P= 0.29 atm ) and NO2 (P= 1.2 atm ) at 350 K. The volume of the container is doubled at constant temperature.

Calculate the equilibrium pressure of N2O4 when the system reaches a new equilibrium. Calculate the equilibrium pressure of NO2 when the system reaches a new equilibrium.

Hey there Alanan2!

Think back to Boyle's Law which states that Volume and Pressure are inversely proportional to one another at constant T and moles.

Use the given equilibrium values to find K. And then construct your ICE chart.

We simply divided the equilibrium values by 2 because Volume increased by 2.

Hope this helps, let us know if you need any further help with this.
