Homework Help: Finding the fourth root of 6.0 x 10

  1. Jun 1, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If Kp = 6.0 x 108

    For equilibrium N2 <--> 2N

    Then what is the equilibrium constant of

    N <--> .5N2

    2. Relevant equations
    K= C^c/A^a

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I tried finding the fourth root of 6.0 x 108 and that didn't give the right result. BTW the answer is 4.1 x 103, I'm just looking for the way to solve the problem.

    Re: Equilibrium

    Write both reaction quotients, see if you can express one as a function of the other.
