You start with an equimolar mixture of the gases SO2 and O2 in a container. The SO2 and O2 react to completion to form SO3. If the temperature after the reaction is 25°C and the pressure in the container is 1.85 atm, what is the density of the product gas mixture? Assume ideal behavior.


Expert Answer

Step 1



Pressure=1.85 atm


From Celsius to kelvin:

Temperature=25°C+273.15 =298.15 K

Step 2

The SO2 reacts with O2 to form SO3 and the reaction is given below.
