Equilibrium constant Kp

Please see attached file.

Consider the following reaction:
CO2(g) + C(s) ----> 2CO(g)
At equilibrium, at a certain temperature, the partial pressures of CO2(g) and CO(g) are 33.7 and 9.26 atm, respectively. Calculate the value of Kp.


Solution Summary

It shows how to calculate the equilibrium constant Kp of the reaction given the partial pressures at the equilibrium.
