Problem Details

Consider the following reactions and their respective equilibrium constants:
NO(g) + 1/2 Br2(g) ⇌ NOBr(g); Kp = 5.3
2 NO(g) ⇌ N2(g) + O2(g); Kp = 2.1 x 1030

Use these reactions and their equilibrium constants to predict the equilibrium constant for the following reaction:
N2(g) + O2(g) + Br2(g) ⇌ 2 NOBr(g)
