Question 1. Equimolar concentrations of H2 and I2 are heated to equilibrium in a 2litre flask. At equilibrium, the forward and backward rate constants are found to be equal. What percentage of initial concentration of H2has reacted at equilibrium?
1.    33.33%
2.    75%
3.    50%
4.    15%
: C

Solution:Correct option is c).

H2(g)+l2(g)2HI(g)Initialmoles110Atequilibrium1x1x2xMolarconcentration(mol/L)(1x)/2(1x)/22x/2=x

K=x2/(1x)×(1x)2×2=4x2/(1x)24x2
K=Kf/Kb=1

4x2=1x=12,i.e.,50%
Question 2. For the reaction 2HI (g)  H2(g) + I2 (g), the degree of dissociation α of HI (g) is related to the equilibrium constant (Kp) by the expression
1.    1+2√Kp2
2.    √1+2Kp√2
3.    √2Kp√2+2Kp
4.    2√Kp1+2√Kp
: D

2HI(g)H2(g)+l2(g)Atequilibrium1αα/2α/2
Total moles at equilibrium =1
PHI=(1α)×P,PH2=α/2×PPl2=α/2×P
Kp=PH2×Pl2/(PHI)2

Substituting above values we get,

Kp=a2/[4×(1α2)]
solving,α/1α=2(Kp)12
α=2Kp1+2Kp
Question 3. The equilibrium constant for the reaction 2SO2 + O2  2 SO3 is 900 atm1 at 800K. A mixture containing SO3 and O2 having initial pressures of 1atm and 2atm is heated to equilibrate. The partial pressure of O2at equilibrium will be
1.    0.97atm
2.    0.012atm
3.    2.01atm
4.    0.024atm
: C

Correct option is c). Considering the backward reaction we have,
2SO32SO2+O2KP=1/900atmInitialpressure1atm02atmPressureatequilibrium1xx2+x/2 Let partial pressure of SO2=p1and partial pressure of O2=p2and partial pressure of SO3=p3
K<p=(p1)2×(p2)/(p3)2=x2(2+x/2)/(1x)2=1/900
AsKpfor this reaction is very small, x<<1.
Taking 2+x/2 as x and (1x) as x and solving for x, we get
X=0.0236
Hence, at equilibrium, partial pressure of SO3=1X=0.9764atm,
Partial pressure of SO2=x=0.0236atm
And Partial pressure of O2=2+x/2=2.0118atm
Question 4. The values of Kp1and KP2 for the reactions
