Equilibrium Question With Gases
« on: November 12, 2021, 09:45:29 PM »
Consider the following equilibrium at 400 K.

H2 (g) + I2 (g) ⇌ 2HI with K = 6.

If initially 4.0 bar of HI is placed in a 2.4 L vessel, what is the total pressure at equilibrium?

What have you tried? You might want to consider putting the phase of the hydrogen iodide in.

the phase wasn't given in the question.

Look up the BP data for hydrogen iodide and try to infer what phase it would be in at T = 400 K (much above RT).
