A 6.1589 gm sample of ammonium hydrogen sulfide is placed in a 4.00L vessel at 24 degrees Celsius. After equilibrium the total pressure inside is 0.709 atm. Some solid ammonium hydrogen sulfide remains.

What is the Kp for the reaction?

What percentage of the solid has decomposed?

If the volume of the vessel were doubled at constant temperature, what would happen to the solid in the vessel?

We just started kinetics in my class and I am confused.
