24. The equilibrium constant, KP, for the reaction SO2 (g) + O2 (g) ⇌ SO3 (g) at 700 K is 3 x 104. A mixture of SO2, O2, and SO3, each at 65 bars was introduced into a container at 700 K. Is the reaction at equilibrium? If not, does SO3 tend to form or decompose?

A. At equilibrium.

B. Not at equilibrium, SO3 tends to decompose.

C. Not at equilibrium, SO3 tends to form.

D. It is not possible to tell.

What do "bars" mean?

bar is the atmospheric pressure at sea level so it can also be translated as as 100 kilopascals which is about 1 atm.

Thank you!
