Solution: An engineer examining the oxidation of SO 2 in the manufacture of sulfuric acid determines that Kc = 1.7 x 108 at 600 K: 2SO2(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2SO3(g) (a) At equilibrium, PSO3 = 300. atm and PO2 = 100. atm. Calculate PSO2. 

Problem

An engineer examining the oxidation of SO 2 in the manufacture of sulfuric acid determines that Kc = 1.7 x 108 at 600 K: 

2SO2(g) + O2(g) ⇌ 2SO3(g) 

(a) At equilibrium, PSO3 = 300. atm and PO2 = 100. atm. Calculate PSO2
