Given the reaction...#SO_2(g) + NO_2(g) rightleftharpoons SO_3(g) + NO(g)#...for which #K_"eq"=3.75#, what will be the equilibrium concentrations of products and reactants?
The equilibrium follows the reaction:
This has roots at
Clearly, the lower value is the only solution consistent with the starting conditions. And thus at equilibrium:
Just as a check, I reput these calculated values back into the equilibrium expression:
Good question; I am stealing it for my A2 class...........Gee, they will howl; especially as some of them will use
