## Calculate a value for the equilibrium constant for the reaction O 2 ( g ) + O ( g ) ⇌ O 3 ( g ) given NO 2 ( g ) ⇄ h v NO ( g ) + O ( g )             K = 6.8     × 10 − 49 O 3 ( g ) + NO ( g ) ⇌ NO ( g ) + O 2 ( g )       K = 5.8     × 10 − 34 (Hint: When reactions are added together, the equilibrium expressions are multiplied.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The equilibrium constant of decomposition of NO2(g) and reaction of O3(g) with NO(g) is given. The equilibrium constant of given reaction is to be calculated.

Concept introduction: The state when the reactants involved in a chemical reaction and the products formed in the reaction exist in concentrations having no further tendency to change is known as an equilibrium state of the reaction. When the equilibrium constant is expressed in terms of concentration, it is represented as K .

To determine: The equilibrium constant of given reaction.

### Explanation of Solution

Explanation

Given

The rate constant of decomposition of NO2(g) is 6.8×1049 .

The rate constant of reaction of O3(g) with NO(g) is 5.8×1034 .

The stated reaction is,

O2(g)+O(g)O3(g)

The reaction of decomposition of NO2(g) is,

NO2(g)hνNO(g)+O(g) (1)

The reaction of O3(g) with NO(g) is,

O3(g)+NO(g)NO2(g)+O2(g) (2)

NO2(g)+O3(g)+NO(g)hνNO(g)+O(g)+NO2(g)+O2(g)

The common terms on both sides is canceled
