Chemistry question, finding equilibrium constat

  1. Jun 17, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The reaction below has a equilibrium constant of Kp = 2.26 x 10^4 at 298 K
    CO(g) + 2H2(g) <=>CH3OH(g)

    Calculate Kp for each of the reactions and predict whether reactants or products will be favored at equilibrium

    A. (1/2)CO(g) + H2(g) <=> (1/2)CH3OH(g)


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know i have to multiply all the coefficients by something..but i just dont know by what. How can i tell?

    Write both reaction quotients and see how they are related.

    Write formulas for equilibrium constants and see if there is no some simple operation that can convert one into the other.
