Use the following reactions and their equilibrium constants to predict the equilibrium constant for the reaction .

Solution 30E Step 1 Given equations: Equilibrium constants for the reactions ................ For reaction (1) ................ For reaction (2) Equilibrium constant values are K = 0.014 and K = 2.35 2 Step 2 Now equilibrium constant for the reaction has to be calculated. On multiplying with 2 to the equation one. We get equation …(3) The equilibrium expression for the equation …….(3) Substitute the K = 10334 we get So K =1.1 X10 -3
