We’re being asked to determine the equilibrium constant at 500˚C for this reaction:

N2(g) + 3 H2(g)  2 NH3(g)


Recall that the equilibrium constant is the ratio of the products and reactants

We use Kp when dealing with pressure and Kc when dealing with concentration:


Kp=PproductsPreactants     Kc=[products][reactants]


Note that solid and liquid compounds are ignored in the equilibrium expression.
