Question

Consider the following equilibrium:

C2H6(g) + C5H12(g) CH4(g) + C6H14(g); Kp = 9.57 at 500 K

Suppose 22.7 g each of CH4, C2H6, C5H12, and C6H14 are placed in a 35.0-L reaction vessel at 500 K. Which of the following statements is correct?

 a. Because Qc < Kc, more products will be formed. b. Because Qc = 1, the system is at equilibrium. c. Because Qc = 1, more products will be formed. d. Because Qc = 1, more reactants will be formed. e. Because Qc > Kc, more reactants will be formed.
