Equilibrium Constants and Balanced Chemical Equations

Consider the reaction in which carbon monoxide gas reacts with oxygen gas to produce carbon dioxide gas:

CO(g) + ½O2(g) ⇔ CO2(g)   with equilibrium constant = K(1) (at temperature = T)

and this reaction:
2CO(g) + O2(g) ⇔ 2CO2(g)   with equilibrium constant = K(2) (also at temperature = T)

 Is the value of K(1) the same as the value of K(2) ?
 Not sure?
That's why AUS-e-TUTE has just added a new set of resources to help you understand this concept!
