# Problem: At 1100 K, Kp = 0.25 for the reaction2SO2(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2SO3(g)What is the value of K at this temperature?

###### FREE Expert Solution

We are being asked to calculate Kfor the given reaction, where its Kp is given.

2SO2(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2SO3(g

When dealing with equilibrium:

Kc → equilibrium units are in molarity
Kp → equilibrium units in terms of pressure

Kp and Kc are related to one another by the following equation below:
