Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by BOB on Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 7:21pm.

The initial concentration for the compounds involved in the reaction displayed were determined to be [CH4(g)] = 0.9530 mol/L, [H2O(g)] = 0.9911 mol/L, [CO(g)] = 0.7474 mol/L, [H2(g)] = 0.2717 mol/L. Calculate the value of the equilibrium constant (Kc) at 1200 K if the equilibrium concentration of CO(g) was 0.8584 mol/L.

CH4(g)+H2O(g) = CO(g)+3H2(g)

i know to find Kc you have to do the products over reactants like this:

([H2]^3)([CO]) / ([CH4][H2O])
and i did the difference of 0.854 & 0.7474 for CO to get it but the answer is still not right..
the answer is 0.2561
but i keep getting 0.0158
i dono what im doing wrong..

**thanks for the help btw!!!
