Problem 14.32

If the equilibrium concentrations found in the reaction A(g) + 2 B(g) 2C(g) are [A] = 0.025 M, [B] = 0.15 M, and [C] = 0.55 M, calculate the value of Kc.


The mass action expression for the reaction is . The equilibrium concentrations of each component is given, so can be directly put into the mass action expression to give .
