C(s) + 2H2O(g)  CO2(g) + 2H2(g)              Kp1 = 3.09

H2(g) + CO2(g)  H2O(g) + CO(g)               Kp2 =0.619

C(s) + 2H2O(g)  CO2(g) + 2H2(g)

2 H2(g) + 2 CO2(g)  2 H2O(g) + 2 CO(g)

###### Problem Details

Calculate the value of Kp for the equation.

C(s) + CO2(g) ⇌ 2CO(g)                              Kp=?

given that at a certain temperature

C(s) + 2H2O(g) ⇌ CO2(g) + 2H2(g)              Kp1 = 3.09

H2(g) + CO2(g) ⇌ H2O(g) + CO(g)               Kp2 =0.619
