A) p CH₄ = 0.732 atm

B) p CCl₄ = 0.732 atm

c) p CH₂Cl₂ = 0.22 atm

Explanation:

we have the equilibrium constant for this problem, along the initial pressures for the reactants, and need to find the partial pressures at equilibrium. So lets setup the equilibrium:

CH₄ (g) + CCl₄ (g) ⇔ 2 CH₂Cl₂ (g) Kp = 9.50 x 10⁻²

where Kp is given by:

Kp = p CH₂Cl₂ ² / p CH₄ x p CCl₄

where p are the partial pressures

p CH₄ atm p CCl₄ atm p CH₂Cl₂ atm

initial 0.844 0.844 0

change - x - x + 2x

equilibrium 0.844 - x 0.844 - x 2 x

Kp = 9.52 x 10⁻² = (2x) ² / ((0.844 - x) x (0.844 - x))

9.52 x 10⁻² = (2x) ² / (0.844 - x) ²

Taking square root to both sides of the equation:

√9.52 x 10⁻² = 2x / (0.844 - x)

0.309 = 2x / (0.844 - x)

0.260 - 0.309 x = 2x

0.260 = 2.309 x ⇒ x = 0.112

So the partial pressures are at equilibrium are:

p CH₄ = p CCl₄ = 0.844 - 0.112 = 0.732 atm

p CH₂Cl₂ = 2 x (0.112 atm) = 0.224 atm

You can check your answer is correct by plugging this values and comparing with the given Kp.
