In the vapor phase, acetic acid molecules associate to a certain extent to form dimers: 2CH3COOH(g) (CH3COOH)2(g) At 51C the pressure of a certain acetic acid vapor system is 0.0342 atm in a 360-mL flask. The vapor is condensed and neutralized with 13.8 mL of 0.0568 M NaOH. (a) Calculate the degree of dissociation () of the dimer under these conditions: (CH3COOH)2 2CH3COOH (Hint: See 14.117 for general procedure.) (b) Calculate the equilibrium constant KP for the reaction in (a).
