  1. Jan 18, 2010 #1
    we mix 0.5 moles of A
    1 mole of B
    2 moles of C
    in a one litter container

    after it blances we find 0.6 moles of A
    find K for
    =(is a sign where two arrows go in different directions)

    1. How many moles of A have been formed?
    2. How can you use this to find how many moles of B and C have been used?

    1. 0.6 moles
    (0.5/1 +1/1+2/1)=output

    1. No, you are mistaken. You started with 0.5 moles and ended up with 0.6 moles. 0.1 moles have been formed.

    2. Look at the reaction. How many moles of B or C correspond to 1 mole of A? Then use this information and find the concentrations of B and C.
