Consider the following equilibrium:

NH4Cl(s)--->NH3(g) + HCl(g)

Suppose a vessel containing NH4Cl(s), NH3(g) and HCl(g) is at equilibrium. If the volume of vessel is instantaneously doubled while keeping the temp constant when a new equilibrium is reacted, which of the following statements is correct?

A) the amount of NH3 and HCl double
B) the partial pressure of NH3 and HCl in the vessel remain unchanged

C) the total pressure is halved

I am going with B) because I think that the partial pressure will be unchange because of the solid in the equation. Is this correct?
