The equilibrium constant is 0.0900 at 25ºC for the reaction

H2O(g) + Cl2O(g) ⇌ 2HOCl(g)

For which of the following sets of conditions is the system at equilibrium? For those that are not at equilibrium, in which direction will the system shift?

a. PH2O = 1.00 atm, PCl2O = 1.00 atm, PHOCl = 1.00 atm

b. PH2O = 200. torr, PCl2O = 49.8 torr, PHOCl = 21.0 torr

c. PH2O = 296 torr, PCl2O = 15.0 torr, PHOCl = 20.0 torr
