Question

Consider the following balanced equation in which gas X forms gas X2:\mathrm {X} _ { 2 } : 2X(g)X2(g)\mathrm { X } ( g ) \longrightarrow \mathrm { X } _ { 2 } ( g ) Equal moles of X are placed in two separate containers. One container is rigid, so the volume cannot change; the other container is flexible, so the volume changes to keep the internal pressure equal to the external pressure. The above reaction is run in each container. What happens to the pressure and density of the gas inside each container as reactants are converted to products?
