    Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations.

    Consider the reaction SO2(g) + NO2(g) = NO(g) + SO3(g) at 460 C. What are the equilibrium concentrations of all reactants and products if the initial concentrations are [SO2]o = [NO2]o = 3.00 x 10-3 M and [NO]o = [SO3]o = 4.00 x 10-2 M? The value of the equilibrium constant for the reaction is 85.0 at 460 C.
