For the reaction

4HCl(g) + O2(g)2H2O(g) + 2Cl2(g)

H° = -114.4 kJ and S° = -128.9 J/K

The equilibrium constant for this reaction at 262.0 K is ______

Assume that H° and S° are independent of temperature


Expert Answer

Step 1

The Gibbs Helmholtz equation is given as,

Where, AGo change in Gibbs free energy
AH change in enthalpy
change in entropy
T temperature

ΔGΔΗ-ΤASo Where, AGo change in Gibbs free energy AH change in enthalpy change in entropy ASo T temperature

Step 2

The Gibbs free energy can be calculated as,

AG° = -114400 J- (262 K x -128.9 J/K)
AGo -80628.2 J

AG° = -114400 J- (262 K x -128.9 J/K) AGo -80628.2 J

Step 3

The equilibrium constant (Keq) ca...

AG° = -RT In Keq
-80628.2 (-8.314 x 262) In Keq
Keq 1.189 x 1016
