A key step in the extraction of iron from its ore is
FeO(s) + CO (g) ⇌ Fe (s) + CO2 (g) Kp = 0.403 at 1, 000°C
This step occurs in the 700°C to 1, 200°C zone within a blast furnace. What are the equilibrium partial pressures of CO(g) and CO2 (g) when 1.2200 atm of CO (g) and excess FeO(s) react in a sealed container at 1, 000°C?
