Isopropyl alcohol is the main ingredient in rubbing alcohol. It can decompose into acetone (the main ingredient in nail polish remover) and hydrogen gas according to the following reaction: C 3 H 7 OH ( g ) ⇌ C 2 H 6 CO ( g ) + H 2 ( g ) At 180°C, the equilibrium constant for the decomposition is 0.45. If 20.0 mL ( d = 0.785 g / mL ) of isopropyl alcohol is placed in a 5.00-L vessel and heated to 180°C, what percent- age remains undissociated at equilibrium?
