Solution: Calculate the value of Kp for the equation. C (s) + CO2 (g) ⇌ 2 CO (g) given that at a certain temperature C (s) + 2 H2O (g) ⇌ CO2 (g) + 2 H2 (g) ; Kp1= 3.09   H2 (g) + CO2 (g) ⇌ H2O (g) + CO (g)   ; Kp2=0.619

Problem

Calculate the value of Kp for the equation.

C (s) + CO(g) ⇌ 2 CO (g)

given that at a certain temperature

C (s) + 2 H2O (g) ⇌ CO(g) + 2 H(g) ; Kp1= 3.09

 

H(g) + CO(g) ⇌ H2O (g) + CO (g)   ; Kp2=0.619
