  Question

The degree of dissociation of $$N_{2}O_{4}$$ into $$NO_{2}$$ at $$1.5$$ atmosphere and $$40^{\circ}C$$ is $$0.25$$. Calculate its $$K_{P}$$ at $$40^{\circ}C$$. Also report degree of dissociation at $$10$$ atmospheric pressure at same temperature.

Solution

$$\quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad \quad { N }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 4 }\leftrightharpoons 2N{ O }_{ 2 }\\ initially\quad \quad \quad \quad 1\quad \quad \quad \quad 0\\ at\quad equlibrium\quad 1-\alpha \quad \quad 2\alpha$$Total moles of gas = 1+$$\alpha$$If P is the total pressure, then partial pressure are :-From Roult's law we have,Partial pressure of the gas-$$p(g)=P_T\times x$$$${ P }_{ { N }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 4 } }=\cfrac { P(1-\alpha ) }{ (1+\alpha ) } \\ { P }_{ N{ O }_{ 2 } }=\cfrac { P(2\alpha ) }{ (1+\alpha ) } \\ { K }_{ P }=\cfrac { { ({ P }_{ N{ O }_{ 2 } }) }^{ 2 } }{ { P }_{ { N }_{ 2 }{ O }_{ 4 } } } =\cfrac { { \left[ \cfrac { P(2\alpha ) }{ (1+\alpha ) } \right] }^{ 2 } }{ \left[ \cfrac { P(1-\alpha ) }{ (1+\alpha ) } \right] } =\cfrac { { (P(2\alpha )) }^{ 2 } }{ P(1-{\alpha}^2 ) } =\cfrac { 1atm{ (2\times (0.25)) }^{ 2 } }{ 1-{0.25}^2 } =\cfrac { 1atm\times (0.25) }{ 0.9375 } =0.26\quad atm$$$$\therefore K_{P}$$ at 40℃ is 0.26 atm.  Chemistry
