###### Problem Details
The oxidation of SO2 to SO3 is accelerated by NO2. The reaction proceeds according to:

NO2(g) + SO2(g) → NO(g) + SO3(g)
2 NO(g) + O2(g) → 2 NO2(g)

Show that, with appropriate coefficients, the two reactions can be summed to give the overall oxidation of SO2 by O2 to give SO3. Give the equation for the final overall oxidation of SO2 by O2 to give SO3 as your answer.
