PROBLEM 121P

Consider the reaction:

2 SO2(g) + O2(g) → 2 SO3(g)

A reaction flask initially contains 0.10 atm of SO2 and 0.10 atm of O2. What is the total pressure in the flask once the limiting reactant is completely consumed? Assume a constant temperature and volume and a 100% reaction yield.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 121P

Here, we are going to calculate the total pressure in the given reaction flask once the limiting reactant is completely consumed.

Step1:

The given reaction is:

                        2SO2(g) + O2(g) → 2SO3(g)

From the above equation, it is clear that 2 moles of SO2 requires 1 mole of O2 for complete reaction.

Now, at constant temperature and volume, the pressure(p) of a gas is directly proportional to the number of moles(n).

Thus,                        

                                p ∝ n

Now, if p1, n1 are the pressure and number of moles of a gas and p2, n2 are the volume and number of moles of another gas , then,

                                        p1 = kn1 

                                        p2 = kn2

Combining the two equations, we get, p1 / n1 = p2 / n2        -----(1)

Step2:

Let, p1, n1 are the pressure and number of moles of SO2 and p2, n2 are the volume and number of moles of O2 , then, pressure of O2 required to react with 0.10 atm pressure of SO2 is given by:

                                        p2 = (p1 x n2) / n1

                                         ...
