Find the equilibrium concentrations of A, B, and C for each value of a, b, and c. Assume that the initial concentrations of A and B are each 1.0 M and that no product is present at the beginning of the reaction.

b. a = 1; b = 1; c = 1
c. a = 2; b = 1; c = 1 (set up equation for x; don’t solve)
7. This reaction is exothermic:
C6H12O6(s) + 6O2(g)→6CO2(g) + 6H2O(g)
