Be sure to answer all parts. 

The water-gas shift reaction plays a central role in the chemical methods for obtaining cleaner fuels from coal: 

CO (g) + H2O (g) ⇌ CO2 (g) + H2 (g) 

A study was made in which equilibrium was reached with [CO] = [H2O] = [H2] = 0.100 M and [CO2] = 0.400 M. After 1.15 mol of H2 is added to the 2.00-L container and equilibrium is reestablished, what are the new concentrations of all the components?
