We’re being asked to calculate the equilibrium concentration of NO, given the following reaction:

N2(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2 NO(g);  Kc = 0.10


We're given the initial concentrations of the reactants:

[N2] = 0.15 M
[O2] = 0.15 M

From this, we can construct an ICE table:


The Kc expression for the reaction is:
