Homework Help: Sequential Reaction Query

  1. Apr 27, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    For the production of chlorobenzene reaction:
    1) C6H6 (l) + Cl2(g) → C6H5Cl (l) + HCl (g)
    2) C6H5Cl (l) + Cl2(g) → C6H4Cl2(l)+ HCl (g)
    3) C6H4Cl2 (l)+ Cl2 (g) → C6H3Cl3(l) + HCl (g)

    Is any of the C6H4Cl2 produced in reaction 2 used up in reaction 3?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    It is a SEQUENCE of reactions, so product of one step is a reactant in the next one.
