Problem 52P

Consider the reaction.

An equilibrium mixture of this reaction at a certain temperature has [CO] = 0.105 M, [H2] = 0.114 M, and [CH3OH] = 0.185 M. What is the value of the equilibrium constant at this temperature?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution: Here, we are going to find the value of the equilibrium constant for the given reaction at the given temperature.

Step1:

The equilibrium constant for a general reaction,

aA + bB ⇄ cC + dD

is expressed as,

Kc = [C]c [D]d / [A]a [B]b

Where [A], [B], [C] and [D] are the equilibrium concentrations of the reactants and products.

Step2:

For the reaction,         CO(g) + 2H2(g) ⇄ CH3OH(g)

Kc = [CH3OH] / [CO] [H2]2

Given,

[CH3OH] = 0.185 M

[CO] = 0.105 M

[H2] = 0.114 M

Substituting the values in the above equation, we get,

Kc = 0.185 / [0.105 x (0.114)2]

= 0.185 / 0.00136458

= 135.57

Thus, the value of the equilibrium constant is 135.57.
