Problem Details

One of the important reactions in the formation of smog is represented by the equation
O3(g) + NO(g) ⇌ NO2(g) + O2(g)                   K P = 6.0 × 1034
What is the pressure of O3 remaining after a mixture of O3 with a pressure of 1.2 × 10 −8 atm and NO with a pressure of 1.2 × 10−8 atm comes to equilibrium? (Hint: KP is large; assume the reaction goes to completion then comes back to equilibrium.)
