We are asked to calculate the total pressure in the container at equilibrium.


Step 1. Set up ICE chart 



Step 2. Calculate x

 Kp = productsreactantsKp = (PNH3)2(PCO2)2.9× 10 -3= (2x)2(x)2.9× 10 -3=4x3x = 2.9× 10 -343

x = 0.090 atm

At 25ºC, Kp = 2.9 x 10 -3 for the reaction

NH4OCONH2(s) ⇌ 2NH3(g) + CO2(g)

In an experiment carried out at 25ºC, a certain amount of NH4OCONH2 is placed in an evacuated rigid container and allowed to come to equilibrium. Calculate the total pressure in the container at equilibrium.
