#### Answer:

With difficulty........we would get

#### Explanation:

Please let me say that I do not know whether this reaction could be reliably accomplished. Certainly, we could assess the energy transfer of the reaction.

Given the equation, we see that 2 equiv of ozone derives from 3 equiv of nitric oxide:

And thus with quantitative reaction we would get:
