Consider the following reaction:
H2O(g) + CO(g)——> H2(g) + CO2(g)
The equilibrium constant Kp for this reaction is 0.55 at 1023 K.
In a reaction vessel, water vapour and carbon monoxide are introduced at a pressure of 3.50 atm, and allowed to reach equilibrium at 1023 K.
Construct a table and use it to calculate the partial pressure of all the gases at equilibrium.
