Question

# At $${90}^{o}C$$, the following equilibrium is established$${H}_{2}(g)+S(s)\rightleftharpoons {H}_{2}S(g)$$ $${K}_{p}=6.8\times {10}^{-2}$$If $$0.2$$ mol of hydrogen and $$1.0$$ mol of sulphur are heated to $${90}^{o}C$$ in a $$1.0$$ litre vessel, what will be the partial pressure of $${H}_{2}S$$ at equilibrium?

Solution

## $$K_C=\cfrac {[H_2S]}{[H_2][S]}$$$$\because K_P=K_C (RT)^{\Delta ng}$$ where $$\Delta ng$$= Difference in gaseous moles of products and reactantsHere $$\Delta ng= (1)-(1)=0$$$$\therefore K_P=K_C=6.8\times 10^{-2}= \cfrac {[H_2S]}{0.2\times 1}$$$$\therefore [H_2S]=1.36 \times 10^{-2}$$= Number of moles of $$H_2S$$Partial pressure of $$H_2S=$$ (mole fraction of $$H_2S$$) $$\times$$ Total pressure$$=X_{H_2S}\times P_t.....(1)$$$$P_t= 1 atm$$$$P_{H_2S}=\cfrac {1.36\times 10^{-2}}{1.36\times 10^{-2}+ 0.2+1}=0.0112 atm$$Chemistry
