Equilibrium #1

Chemistry Level 3

The equilibrium constant \(K_{p}\) of the reaction \[2\text{SO}_{2}(g)\quad +\quad \text{O}_{2}(g) \quad \iff \quad 2\text{SO}_{3}(g)\] is 900 atm at 800 K. A mixture containing \(\text{SO}_{3}\) and \(\text{O}_{2}\) having initial pressure of 1 and 2 atm respectively is heated at constant volume to equilibrium. Calculate the sum of the partial pressures of all gases at 800 K.

Unit of partial pressure is atm.

\(\iff\) denotes reaction in forward as well as backward direction.

Find the answer to the nearest two decimal places.
