Consider the reaction.

\(\mathrm{CO}(g)+\mathrm{Cl}_{2}(g) \rightleftharpoons \mathrm{COCl}_{2}(g)\)

Find the mistake in the equilibrium expression and fix it.

\(K_{\mathrm{eq}}=\frac{[\mathrm{CO}]\left[\mathrm{Cl}_{2}\right]}{\left[\mathrm{COCl}_{2}\right]}\)

\mathrm{CO}(g)+\mathrm{Cl}_{2}(g) \rightleftharpoons \mathrm{COCl}_{2}(g)

K_{\mathrm{eq}}=\frac{[\mathrm{CO}]\left[\mathrm{Cl}_{2}\right]}{\left[\mathrm{COCl}_{2}\right]}

Solution:

In the given equilibrium equation, we have to write the expression for Keq

CO (g) + Cl2 (g) COCl2 (g)

The equilibrium expression is ,

[COCl2]

Keq = ------------

[CO][Cl2]
