Problem

One reaction that occurs in producing steel from iron ore is the reduction of iron(II) oxide by carbon monoxide to give iron metal and carbon dioxide. The equilibrium constant, p, for the reaction at 1000 K is 0.259.

FeO (s) + CO (g) ⇌ Fe (s) + CO (g)                 p = 0.259 at 1000 K.

What is the equilibrium partial pressure of CO at 1000 K if the initial partial pressures are CO = 1.000 atm and CO2 = 0.500 atm?
