Free energy and equilibrium

  1. Oct 18, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The water gas shift reaction used commercially to produce H2

    deltaG std condtions = -28.6 KJ\mol

    Calculate the Kp at 900K


    2. Relevant equations

    G0=-RTln(k)



    3. The attempt at a solution

    -28.6x1000/(-8.314x900)= ln(k)
    k=e3.822
    k= 45.7

    However this is not the correct answer. COuld someone please help me out.
