dissociation pressure

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

When a solid compound dissociates to give one or more gaseous products, the dissociation pressure is the pressure of gas in equilibrium with the solid at a given temperature. For example, when calcium carbonate is maintained at a constant high temperature in a closed container, the dissociation pressure at that temperature is the pressure of carbon dioxide from the equilibrium CaCO3(s) ⇌ CaO(s)+CO2(g)

CaCO3(s) ⇌ CaO(s)+CO2(g)
