"For the following rxn, if initially .1 mol h2o is placed in a 4 l vessel, what are the equilibrium partial pressures of each product and reactant? kp= 3.72 at 1000 k
h2o + c = h2 + co "

For this problem I got x=.034 and plugged that number in to calculate the equilibrium of all of the reactants and products, however my answer did not match the answer found in the back of the quiz. However, the answer in the back of the quiz is in atm, and I was wondering if my answer is indeed correct and I just did not convert it correctly to atm. If this is the case, how would I convert it correctly?

You would convert the x by using the equation PV = nRT.
