How many percents of iodine will dissociate on 1273K if the density of iodine vapors toward hydrogen in this temperature is 92?
How can I calculate it without the Keq? How to use the density towards hydrogen? 92*2=184g of I2?

can you get density out of PV=nRT?

what's relative density?

p=mRT/(MV)
m/V=d
p=dRT/V
What to do now? What is that relative density?

relative density here is 184.

since we are chemists we want to deal with moles and molar masses.

what exactly does density(I2)/density(H2) mean in this case?

Don't have a clue. I only know that it is 92. Could you explain it more clearly?

i am sorry. i meant the relative density is 92 as per your problem.

you need to plug that in and focus on mollar mass ratios.

density(I2)/density(H2)=92
m(I2)/M(H2)=92
m(I2)=92*2=184
So, what to do now?

what's the molar mass of I2. what's the molar mass of your mixture? why are they different?

Hard for me to understand because I never done similar problems before and I there is no explanation in my book.Is this right:
The mass of the mixture is 184g, and the molar mass of I2 is 254g, so 70g dissociated?

write the equation of dissociation, come up with the formula for the average weight: we started with 1 mole, x moles dissociated, etc.

the average weight of the mixture is dependent on x, so is Keq.

I2 2I
1-x      2x
[m(I2)+m(2I)]/2=... is this 184?

we have 6 apples 80 g. each and 8 apples 60 g. each, what's the average weight of an apple?

10.42g?
How to use it here?
I2 2I
1-x      2x
[m(I2)+m(2I)]/2=... is this 184?
Why is this wrong?

how can it be 10.42 g.? the smallest apple weights 60 g.
it is a good idea to check if the answer makes sense.

>>>[m(I2)+m(2I)]/2=... is this 184?

why do you divide by 2? you will get the same value regardless of the degree of dissociation. how is it useful for anything?

The average weight is of an apple is 70g. Could you please write how to solve this?
