###### Question

Calculate the value of Kp for the equation

C (s) + CO(g) ⇌ 2 CO (g) Kp = ?

Given that at a certain temperature

C (s) + 2 H2O (g) ⇌ CO(g) + 2 H(g) Kp1 = 3.97

H(g) + CO(g) ⇌ H2O (g) + CO (g) Kp2 = 0.623

# Solution: Calculate the value of Kp for the equationC (s) + CO2 (g) ⇌ ...

For this problem, we are given the following equations:

1 - $C_{(s)} + 2\ H_2O_{ (g)} â‡Œ CO_{2\ (g)} + 2 H_{2\ (g)} \qquad Kp_1 = 3.97$

2 - $H_{2\ (g)} + CO_{2\ (g)} â‡Œ H_2O_{(g)} + CO_{(g)} \qquad Kp_2 = 0.623$

And asked to solve for Kp for the reaction:

$C_{(s)} + CO_{2\ (g)} â‡Œ 2\ CO_ {(g)} \qquad Kp = ?$

To find Kp of the reaction above, we must manipulate the equations mentioned initially in order to achieve the reaction missing the Kp value...
