    The heterogeneous equilibrium process
    C(s) + CO2(g) f/r 2 CO(g)

    At 700 deg. C. the total pressure in this system is 4.71 atem. The equilibrium constant is 1.52, calculate the equilibrium partial pressures of CO2 and CO.

    PCO2=? atm
    PCO=? atm

    Because, change in moles,
    delta(n_gas) = 2 - (1) = 1

    Temperature T = 700+273 = 973 K
    Kc = 1.52

    Because,
    Kp = Kc*(RT)^delta(n_gas) = Kc*R*T ...
