We’re being asked to determine the equilibrium concentration of H2 at 700 K for the following reaction:

H2(g) + I2(g)  2 HI(g)

Recall that the equilibrium constant is the ratio of the products and reactants

We use Kp when dealing with pressure and Kc when dealing with concentration:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{K}}}_{{\mathbf{p}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{{\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{products}}}{{\mathbf{P}}_{\mathbf{reactants}}}}$     $\overline{){{\mathbf{K}}}_{{\mathbf{c}}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{\left[}\mathbf{products}\mathbf{\right]}}{\mathbf{\left[}\mathbf{reactants}\mathbf{\right]}}}$

Note that solid and liquid compounds are ignored in the equilibrium expression.
