Chemical Equilibrium - equilibrium constant
Lol, I just took a test on the Chemical Kinetics chpater I been asking help on and I got a 70.. :( ..after all that studying. For some reason, the last couple of chapter tests have not been too good for me, not sure why, maybe because we are starting to get towards the end of the book.
Anyways, the question I am having trouble with:
Suppose that a gas-phase reactions A --> B and B --> are both elementary processes with rate constants of 3.8 x 10^-2 s- and 3.1 x 10^-1 s-, respectively. (a) What is the value of the equilibrium constant for the equilibrium reaction A(g) B(g) ? (b) Which is greater at equilibrium, the partial pressure of A or the partial pressure of B? Explain.
I've tried to use K(forward) / K(reverse) = a equilibrium constant. But that doesnt give me the right answer..help.
