"Synthesis gas" is a mixture of carbon monoxide and water vapor. At high temperature synthesis gas will form carbon dioxide and hydrogen, and in fact this reaction is one of the ways hydrogen is made industrially. A chemical engineer studying this reaction fills a 200.mL flask with 2.4atm of carbon monoxide gas and 2.1atm of water vapor. When the mixture has come to equilibrium she determines that it contains 1.4atm of carbon onoxide gas, 1.1atm of water vapor and 1.0atm of carbon dioxide. The engineer then adds another 0.70atm of water, and allows the mixture to come to equilibrium again. Calculate the pressure of hydrogen after equilibrium is reached the second time.
