Homework Help: Equilibrium Problems

  1. Nov 8, 2003 #1
    Kc = .090

    a). Calculate the concn. of all species at equilibrium if 1.00g of water and 4.78g of ClO are mixed in a 1.0L flask.

    b). Calculate the concn. of all species at equilibrium if 1.0 mol of pure HOCl is placed in a 2.0L flask. Hint: consider what is now the reactant.





    H2O + Cl2O --> 2HOCl

    I| 18mol 88 mol 0
    C| -x -x +x
    E| 18-x 88-x x

    Kc= .090 = [HOCl]2 / [H2O].[Cl2O] = x2/(18-x)(88-x)


    Solve for x and find all species.Is this the correct way ? Am I confusing you... *hmmm*
