Hmwrk 11.33 6th edition

Postby Lina Petrossian 1D » Tue Jan 15, 2019 12:25 am

11.33 A 0.500-L reaction vessel at 700. K contains 1.20 mmol SO2(g), 0.50 mmol O2(g), and 0.10 mmol SO3(g). At 700. K, Kc = 1.7 x 10^6 for the equilibrium 2 SO2(g) + O2(g) -> 2 SO3(g).
(a) Calculate the reaction quotient Qc. (b) Will more SO3(g) tend to form?
Why does part b answer state that Q > K?

In my solutions manual it says that Q<K. When you solve for Q, you should get 6.9 which is smaller than K of 1.7 x 10^6. Therefore, bc Q<K, the rxn will form more constants (favor forward rxn).
