Pressure's Effect on Equilibrium

When hydrogen gas reacts with Iodine as a gas, Hydrogen Iodine is produced in its gaseous form. The equilibrium concetrations for both reactants were found to be 0.86 M and the product was found to be 0.27. Calculate the value of the equilibrium constant. How would pressure effect the equilibrium of this reaction?

Solution Summary

Solution explains how to calculate an equilibrium constant and the effects of pressure in the given situation on that equilibrium.
