The Kc for the following reaction at 940oC is 1.38.

Given the concentrations [CO2] = 0.500 M, [H2] = 0.425 M, [CO] = 0.610 M and [H2O] = 0.695 M, one can conclude that:
H2(g) + CO2(g) ↔ CO(g) + H2O(g)

Question 8 options:
A) the system is not at equilibrium and the reaction will proceed to the right
B) the system is at equilibrium and no net change will occur
C) the system is not at equilibrium and the reaction will proceed to the left
D) there is insufficient information to determine which way the reaction will proceed
