Question

# $$\displaystyle { K }_{ p }=0.04\;atm$$ at 899 K for the equilibrium shown below. What is the equilibrium concentration of $$\displaystyle { C }_{ 2 }{ H }_{ 6 }$$ when it is placed in a flask at 4.0 atm pressure and allowed to come to equilibrium?$$\displaystyle { C }_{ 2 }{ H }_{ 6 }\left( g \right) \rightleftharpoons { C }_{ 2 }{ H }_{ 4 }\left( g \right) +{ H }_{ 2 }\left( g \right)$$

Solution

## The initial partial pressures of ethane, ethylene and hydrogen are 4.0 atm, 0 atm and 0 atm respectively.The equilibrium parial pressures are 4-p atm, p atm and p atm respectively.The equilibrium constant expression is $$\displaystyle K_c =\frac{P_{C_2H_4}P_{H_2}}{P_{C_2H_6}} = \frac {p \times p} {4-p} = 0.04$$$$\displaystyle p^2 = 0.16 - 0.04p$$$$\displaystyle p = 0.38$$The equilibrium concentration of ethane is $$\displaystyle 4 - 0.38 = 3.62 \ atm$$.ChemistryNCERTStandard XI
