Is this right? chem

Hi guys can you please check if this is right....thanks in advance

Given the reaction CO2(g) + H2(g) = H2O(g) + CO(g). If initially there are 2.0 moles of CO2 (g) and 2.0 moles of H2(g) introduced into an empty 1.0L container, at 1800ºC, it is found that at equilibrium there are 0.3 moles of CO2 still present. Calculate the Ke value for this reaction at 1800ºC.

CO2(g) + H2(g) = H2O(g) + CO(g)
Initially 2 2 0 0
Equilibrium 2-1.7=.3 2-1.7=.3 1.7 1.7


Ke = 1.7 * 1.7/(.3 * .3) = 32.11

I would try but I don't know what Ke is. Sorry.

Alright here goes JoeJo:

This is the equilibrium expression for the reaction:

[tex]CO_2+H_2\leftrightarrows H_2O+CO[/tex]

[tex]K_c=\frac{[H_2O][CO]}{[CO_2][H_2]}[/tex]

This at the concentrations at equilibrium which as you indicated, only 1.7 moles of both reagents reacted. So even though it would be nice if you formatted it nicely like I did, your answer looks Ok.

shouldn't the answer be 0.03

JoeJo, your answer in #1 is corret, [itex]K_c=32.11[/itex]. How do you end up with 0.03?

Kc=[H2O][CO] over [CO2][H2] = (0.3)^2 over (1.7)^2 = 0.03??


am i right or wrong?

What is [itex][CO_2]=[H_2]=?[/itex] at equilibrium? By the way you're correct about

[tex]K_c=\frac{[H_2O][CO]}{[CO_2][H_2]}[/tex]

[tex]K_c=\frac{[H_2O][CO]}{[CO_2][H_2]}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{(0.3)^2}{(1.7)^2} [/tex]

= 0.03
