#### Chemical Equilibrium for Multiple Reactions: Example Problems

Try to solve these problems before watching the solutions in the screencasts.

##### Example Problem 1

Calculate the equilibrium composition at 750 K and 1 bar for the water-gas shift reaction for a feed of 2 mol/s CO and 2 mol/s H_{2}O using both extent of reaction and Gibbs minimization. Use temperature-dependent heat capacities and assume the heats of formation are a function of temperature. (Spreadsheet: WGS Chemical Equilibrium by Gibbs Minimization)

##### Example Problem 2

Calculate the equilibrium composition at 950 K and 3.0 bar for a feed of 1.0 mol/s CH_{4} and 1.0 mol/s H_{2}O using Gibbs minimization. Use temperature-dependent heat capacities and assume the heats of formation are a function of temperature. Assume that CO, CO_{2} and H_{2} can form.
