A chemist is studying the following equilibirum, which has the given equilibrium constant at a certain temperature:

2CH4(g) = 3H2(g) + C2H2(g) .    Kp = 3.0 x 10-1

He fills a reaction vessel at this temperature with 11.atm of methane gas. Use this data to answer the questions below.

Are fourth degree polynomials present? 

What is the equilibrium pressure of H2 ?
