Hey there. I'm having problems with this question.

Consider the following equilibrium, for which Kp = 0.0752 at 480 *C (degrees Celsius):

2 Cl2 (g) + 2 H2O (g) <--> 4 HCl (g) + 02 (g)

a) What is the value of Kp for the reaction of 4 HCl (g) + 02 (g) <--> 2 Cl2 (g) + 2 H2O (g)?

b) What is the value of Kp for the reaction of Cl2 (g) + H2O (g) <--> 2 HCl (g) + 1/2 O2 (g) ?

c) What is the value of Kc for the reaction in part (b) ?

Could you please show work?

Thanks in advance!
