The water–gas shift reaction CO1g2 + H2O1g2Δ
CO21g2 + H21g2 is used industrially to produce hydrogen.
The reaction enthalpy is H = -41 kJ.
(b) Could you increase the equilibrium yield
of hydrogen by controlling the pressure of this reaction? If
so would high or low pressure favor formation of H2(g)?
