    I agree i think but I haven't done this topic before so bare with (I'm going onto 2nd year a level chemistry).
    n2 + 3h2 --> 2nh3
    mole fraction of nh3 = 0.15
    mole fraction of n2 = 0.25 - (0.15/4) = 0.2125
    mole fraction of h2 = 0.75 - 3(0.15/4) = 0.6375
    Pa of nh3 = 1500
    Pa of n2 = 2125
    Pa of h2 = 6375
    Kp = (1500)^2/(2125) x (6375)^3 = 4.08679653e-9 I hope this helps. Happy to explain
    I think I got that but the answer is 0.99 close to 1. Thanks anyway

    But that question only gives you the partial pressure whereas the question I'm doing now gives you hints about the inital moles and moles at equilibrium here is the explanation

    I have actually done that already but I don't know how to work out the mole of ammonia so my equilibrium moles for the reactants are wrong. If I am using the values 0.25 and 0.75 for my 1:3 ratio, it wouldn't work as 3/2 of 0.9 is 1.35
    Yeah I have no idea how they got to that answer.

    Just to check I'm not being silly, is it just me or does their reaction mixture at equilibrium contain 29% ammonia? 0.9/3.1 is definitely not 15%.

    Yeah I think that explanation is wrong. At one point it says the total equilibrium moles is 6 and then at the end they say it's 3.1!

    I don't really understand it but I thought 0.9 is 15% of 6 instead of 3.1? I guess the problem lays within the values I use, I think only 1 and 3 will work. Thanks though

    Can I just say that the mole fraction for nh3 must be 0.15 as it's 15%. Are you sure 0.99 is the answer? I'm pretty sure that explanation in the red text is wrong.

    Opps , the answer is 3.156 x 10-3kPa-2, I didn't scroll down

    3.156 x 10-3kPa-2 is the right answer, soz I misread
