Fe(s) + H2O(g)<-> FeO(s) + H2(g)
Calculate K for the above reaction, using the information which follows.
H2O(g) + CO(g)<-> H2(g) + CO2(g) K = 1.6
FeO(s) + CO(g)<-> Fe(s) + CO2(g) K = 0.67

  • Chemistry -

    Add equn 1 to the reverse of equation 2. K1 = 1.6
    K2 for the reversed equation is 1/0.67
    K for the reaction is K1K2
