Step 1

The equilibrium reaction and the equilibrium constant are given.

The square braces denote molar concentrations. The molar concentration is defined as the ratio of the mole(s) of the substance to the volume of the vessel containing the substance.

Step 2

Let the equilibrium system contain n1, n2 and n3 mole(s) of CO, Cl2 and COCl2 in a vessel having volume V. Therefore,

Step 3

Let T be the equilibri...
