Step 1

The reaction and the given data along with the calculation of equilibrium constant is given below:

Step 2

Given that some oxygen is added and spark is applied so that the hydrogen reacts completely with the oxygen. This will result in all 0.13 moles of hydrogen being converted to 0.13 moles...
