Reaction Quotient y At 2000 K the equilibrium constant for the formation of NO gas is 4.0 x 10 -4 . In a certain container the concentration of N 2 is 0.50 M, that of O 2 is 0.25 M, and that of NO is 4.2 x 10 -3 M. Is the system at equilibrium? If not, predict which way the reaction will proceed to achieve equilibrium.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
