    The equilibrium constant Kc for the reaction is 54.3 at 430 deg C
    H2(g)+I2(g) f/r 2HI(g)
    At the start of the reaction there are 0.714 mole of H2, 0.984 mole of I2, and 0.886 mole of HI in a 1.90 L reaction chamber. Calculate concentrations of the gases at equilibrium:

    The initial concentrations of each species are given. One needs to find the Ktrial (trial Keq) in order to determine the direction of equilibrium shift:

    H2(g) + I2(g) <--> 2 HI(g)
    Kc = ( [HI]^2 ) / ( ...
