As we learned in concept

Law of Chemical equilibrium -

At a given temperature, the product of concentration of the reaction products raised to the respective stoichiometric coefficient in the balanced chemical equation divided by the product of concentration of the reactants raised to their individual stoichiometric coefficients has a constant value.

- wherein

aA+bB\rightleftharpoons cC+dD


K_{c}=\frac{[C]^{c\:[D]^{d}}}{[A]^{a}\:[B]^{b}}

[A],\:[B],\:[C]\:[D]

are equilibrium concentration

 

                                 H_{2}(g)+CO_{2}(g)\rightleftharpoons H_{2}O(g)+CO(g), k =1.8

at t=0                              1                1                    0                    0       

at equilibrium                 1-x             1- x                 x                    x

=>1.8=\frac{x^{2}}{(1-x)^{2}}

\frac{x}{1-x}=1.34

x=0.573
