General Principles and Processes of Isolation of Elements
Carbon monoxide is more effective reducing agent than carbon below 983 K but above this temperature the reverse is true. If true enter 1 else 0.
Correct Answer: Option(a)
Solution: The three reactions are as :
Below 983 K reaction is more favored due to more negative G value thus CO is better reducing agent than carbon.
Above 983 K, reaction has more negative than oxidation of CO to so carbon will be better reducing agent.
