1. 2 NaHCO3(s) <===> Na2CO3(s) + H2O(g) + CO2(g)

Solid sodium hydrogen carbonate, NaHCO3, decomposes on heating according to the equation above. a) A sample of 100. g of solid NaHCO3 was placed in a previously evacuated rigid 5.00 L container and heated to 160.° C. Some of the original remained and the total pressure in the container was 7.76 atm when equilibrium was reached. Calculate the number of moles of H2O(g) present at equilibrium. ngas = PV/RT = (7.76 atm)(5.00 L)/(0.0821 L-atm/K-mol)(433 K) = 1.09 mol mol H2O = (1/2)(1.09 mol) = 0.545 mol H2O(g) b) How many grams of the original solid remain in the container under the conditions described in (a). (0.545 mol H2O)(2 mol NaHCO3/mol H2O)(84.0 g NaHCO3/mol) = 91.9 g NaHCO3 decomposed 100.g - 91.6g = 8.4 g remain c) Write the equilibrium expression for the equilibrium constant, K p, and calculate its value for the reaction under he conditions in (a). Kp = (PH2O)(PCO2) = (3.88)(3.88) atm2 = 15.1 atm2 d) If 110. grams of solid had been placed in the 5.00 L container and heated to 160.° C, what would the total pressure have been at equilibrium? Explain. Pressure would remain at 7.76 atm. Since some solid remained when 100.g was used, and there has been no temperature change, then using 110 g will not affect the equilibrium.

. assume that all other variables remain constant except for the given disturbance. (a) Additional H2(g) is added to the equilibrium mixture at constant volume. A decrease in volume will result in an increase in pressure.3. CO(g). decrease. and H2(g) at equilibrium. Explain each answer with a short statement. An increase of hydrogen gas molecule will increase the rate of the reverse reaction which consumes CO. CO will decrease.

(c) The volume of the container is decreased at constant temperature. CO will decrease. Since the forward reaction is endothermic (a ∆H > 0) an increase in temperature will cause the forward reaction to increase its rate and produce more CO. or remain the same after each of the following disturbances is applied to the original mixture. For each case. (b) The temperature of the equilibrium mixture is increased at constant volume. A LeChâtelier Principle shift to the left. the size of the solid will affect neither the reaction rates nor the equilibrium nor the concentrations of reactants or products. CO will remain the same. CO will increase. the equilibrium will shift to the side with fewer gas molecules to decrease the pressure. A LeChâtelier Principle shift to the right. State whether the number of moles of CO (g) in the container will increase. a shift to the left. (d) The graphite pellets are pulverized.

The amount of solid NH4HS present does not affect the equilibrium. b) The effect on the equilibrium partial pressure of NH3 gas when additional solid H2S is introduced into the container. At equilibrium. . some solid NH4HS remains in the container. Kp = (PNH3)(PH2S). The equilibrium vapo pressure of NH3 gas would decrease. the equilibrium pressure of NH3 must decrease when the pressure of H2S is increased.4. Predict and explain each of the following. a) The effect on the equilibrium partial pressure of NH3 gas when additional solid NH4HS is introduced into the container. The equilibrium vapor pressure of NH3 gas would be unaffected. Kp = (PNH3)(PH2S). In order for the pressure equilibrium constant. to remain constant.
