Day 20 Podia Question

Day 20 Pre-class Podia Problem

One way to remove silver oxide tarnish from silver is to heat the silver to a high temperature.

The reaction is:

2 Ag2O → 4 Ag(s) + O2(g)

At 298 K, the reaction is reactant-favored. Obtain data from the Appendix and determine at what temperature the reaction becomes product-favored. What assumptions need to be made to solve this problem?

Two days before the next whole-class session, this Podia question will become live on Podia, where you can submit your answer.
