Problem

At 850 K the equilibrium constant for the following reaction is K c = 15.

2SO2(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2SO3(g)
 

If we mix the following concentrations of the three gases, predict in which direction the reaction will proceed toward equilibrium: Left, Right, or No Reaction.

a. [SO2] = 0.60 M, [O2] = 0.70 M, [SO3] = 0.16 M

b. [SO2] = 0.20 M, [O2] = 0.60 M, [SO3] = 0.60 M

c. [SO2] = 0.10 M, [O2] = 0.20 M, [SO3] = 0.40 M
