Solution: Determine the value of the equilibrium constant, Kgoal, for the reaction:C(s) +1/2 O2(g) + H2(g) ⇌ 1/2 CH3OH(g) + 1/ 2CO(g), Kgoal=? by making use of the following information:1. CO2(g)+3H2(g) ⇌ CH3OH

Problem

Determine the value of the equilibrium constant, Kgoal, for the reaction:

C(s) +1/2 O2(g) + H2(g) ⇌ 1/2 CH3OH(g) + 1/ 2CO(g), Kgoal=? 

by making use of the following information:

1. CO2(g)+3H2(g) ⇌ CH3OH(g)+H2O(g), K1 = 1.40×102

2. CO(g)+H2O(g) ⇌ CO2(g)+H2(g), K2 = 1.00×105

3. 2C(s)+O2(g) ⇌ 2CO(g), K3 = 2.10×1047

Express your answer numerically.
