CO (g) + 3H2 (g) ↔ CH4 (g) + H2O (g)?
Find the value of K if the equilibrium mixture contains 0.51M CO, 0.30M H2, 1.8M CH4, and 2.0M H2O. Write the answer to the correct number of significant figures!

Kc = [CH4][H2O]/[CO]H2]^3
Kc = (1.8)(2.0) / 0.51(0.3)^3 = 2.6X10^2
The forward reaction is favored because K>>1.
