Partial Pressure

At 68. Celsius Kp=9.15×10^-3 for reaction
I2(s)--->I2(g).
What is the equilibrium partial pressure of I2(g) at 68 Celsius.
Do we use I2(s) when calculating?
I thought Kp was equal to PI2(g).

Is the value for Kp given at a different temperature? Maybe use Van't Hoff? Because we don't include solids in our equilibrium constant equations, right?

The equilibrium partial pressure expression should not include solids, as they do not have a partial pressure. In this case, the partial pressure should be equal to the Kp value because there is no other value in this expression.

^ yes solids should not be included

Pure solids and liquids should be excluded from the partial pressure equilibrium constant calculations.
