N_{2}O_{4} (g) <=> 2NO_{2}

Initial 1 0

Equilibr. (1-x) 2X

Total moles = (1-x) + 2X = (1+x)

p(N_{2}O_{4}) = (1-x)/(1+x)*P

Given X = 0.25 P = 1 atm.

p(N_{2}O_{4}) = 0.6 atm

p(NO_{2}) = 0.4 atm

K_{p} = p(NO_{2})^{2}/p(N_{2}O_{4}) = 0.267 atm

If degree of dissociation of N_{2}O_{4} at 0.1 atm is Y

p(N_{2}O_{4}) = (1-Y)/(1+Y)*0.1

p(NO_{2}) = 2Y/(1+Y)*0.1

K_{p} = ((2Y+ Y)^2 * (0.1)^2 ) / ((1-Y)/(1+Y) *0.1) = 0.667Y^2

0.267 atm = 0.667Y^2

Y=0.632 (63.2%)
