### 8.53

I don't really understand how to set up number 53, how do I set up the balanced equation?

The balanced equation would be CO(g) + H2O(g) →CO2(g) + H2(g). Water vapor is water but in gas form. Hydrogen gas is H2.

The problem gives all reactants and products. As for the phases, everything is in gas form at the given temperatures. Water can be liquid, but the problem specifies that the reaction uses water vapor.
