    The water - gas shift reaction plays an important role in the production of clean fuel from coal.

    CO(g) + H20(g) <--> CO2(g) + H2 (g)

    Given Data:

    Substance = CO(g) H20(g) CO2(g) H2(g)

    Delta H (KJ/Mol) -110.5 -241.8 -393.5 0

    Delta S (J/Mol K) 197.7 188.8 213.7 130.7

    Use the given data to find the equilibrium constant Kp at 700K?

    I know that I am supposed to use the equation:
    ln K = Delta G /-R*T. But I am having trouble with the set up required to solve for G using:
    Delta G = sum n* delta G products - sum m* reactants.
