Consider the reactionCaCO3(s)CaO(s)+ CO2(g)Using the standard thermodynamic data in the tables linked above, calculate the equilibrium constant for this reaction at 298.15K.ANSWER:

  1. Consider the reaction


    Using the standard thermodynamic data in the tables linked above, calculate the equilibrium constant for this reaction at 298.15K.

Step 1

The decomposition of calcium carbonate results in the formation of calcium oxide and carbon dioxide gas. The corresponding chemical reaction is shown below:

CaCO, (s) CaO(s)+CO, (g)

CaCO, (s) CaO(s)+CO, (g)

Step 2

The Gibb’s free energy for CaCO3(s), CaO(s) and CO2(g) are taken as -1081.4 kJ/mol, -603.3 kJ/mol and -394.36 kJ/mol respectively.

Step 3

The standard Gibb’s free energy for a reacti...
