Determine Equilibrium Partial Pressure

An evacuated 4.0 L vessel containing solid sulfur is initially charged with 1.30 atm hydrogen gas at 44.9 celsius. Eventually, the following equilibrium is achieved:

H_2(gas)+ S(solid) = H_2S (gas)

Determine the equilibrium partial pressure of molecular hydrogen in the vessel given that K=0.68 for the reaction as written.
