¬¾ ¾ 2.0 x10-6 M much smaller 2 NO2 (g) 1.8 x10-2 M much larger Example 2: Sulfur dioxide reacts with oxygen at 25 °C to reach equilibrium. Kc for this reaction at this 3
temperature is 8.0x10 5 . ¾¾
O2 (g) ¬¾ 2 SO3 (g) ¾
a) From the magnitude o f Kc, which react ion is favored (forward or reverse) when equilibrium is established? 2 SO2 (g) + b) If an equilibrium mixture is 1.0 M SO3 and has equal concentrations of SO2 and O2, what is the concentration of SO2 in the mixture? Does this result agree with what you expect fro m the magnitude of Kc? 14 Chemistry 102 Chapter 14 PREDICTING THE DIRECTION OF REACTION
· Consider the fo llowing reaction and the fo llowing composit ion of gas mixture present. ¾¾
