Be sure to answer all parts.

At 430°C, the equilibrium constant (KP) for the reaction

 2NO(g) + O2(g) ⇆ 2NO2(g)

is 1.5×105. In one experiment, the initial pressures of NO, O2, and NO2 are

8.2×10−3 atm,5.0×10−2atm,and 0.22 atm,respectively. Calculate QP and predict the direction that the net reaction will shift to reach equilibrium.
