H2(g) + I2(g) = 2HI at a temperature T(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If 1.40 mol H2 and 3.50 mol I2 are placed in a

1.00 L vessel, what is the equilibrium concentration of I2 in the gaseous mixture?

The equilibrium constant is K = 49.7 x 10 10

HINT You can use the approximation for Large Equilibrium Constants

this problem is giving me such a big headache, i mean i set up the table and it should be

49.7X10^10=[2x]^2/[1.4-x][3.5-x]

and then just use a quadratic fomula to find x, and subtract the number from 3.5, and i keep getting for x= 2.29x10^13, cause it cant be negative

please help
