Pressure-dependence of electrolysis voltage

I'm trying to better understand electro-chemistry, so please explain why this second-kind perpetual motion device won't work. I guess it's safe to assume it won't work one way or another. There is a ...

Finding Pressure of M in a Charge Exchange

Ar (RE = 15.5 eV) is the reagent gas in a charge exchange experiment. If Ar+ reacts with anisole with a rate constant of 2.26x10-10cm3 molecules-1/s-1 and 65% of the Ar ions react in 25 milliseconds, ...

Calculating Equilibrium Partial Pressures Given Kp and Mass

For the reaction $$\ce{AsCl5(g) <=> AsCl3(g) + Cl2(g)}$$ at $550$ K, the equilibrium constant ($K_p$) is $9.81$. Suppose that $3.150 \ g$ $\ce{AsCl5}$ is placed in an evacuated $600$ ml ...

Volume of dried gas at STP

A $54.0\ \mathrm{mL}$ sample of oxygen is collected over water at $20\ \mathrm{^\circ C}$ and $770\ \mathrm{Torr}$ pressure. What is the volume of the dry gas at STP? By using the combined gas law, I ...

Why do gases liquify under pressure?

To my understanding, an increase in pressure (of gases in a container) is proportional to an increase in gases' kinetic energy, and hence temperature. However I read that gases liquify under pressure.....

Pressure-Volume Formula Question

I have a chemistry homework problem that states the following: $6.2$ L of $N_2$ at $0.74$ bar is mixed with a $15.2$ L sample of $O_2$ at $0.35$ bar. The gaseous mixture is placed in a container of ...

What happened to this 10 year old unopened plastic bottle?

A colleague of mine found this unopened Aquarius bottle (non-carbonated drink) that was 10 years past its expiration date. The bottle was collapsed inward which would suggest that the pressure in ...
A sample of $\pu{1.42 g}$ of helium and an unweighted quantity of oxygen gas are mixed in a flask at room temperature. The partial pressure of helium in the flask is $\pu{42.5 torr}$, and partial ...
