Question: sulfur dioxide and oxygen react to produce sulfur trioxide as...

Question details

Sulfur dioxide and oxygen react to produce sulfur trioxide as follows:
SO2(g) + 1/2 O2(g) = SO3(g)

Δ~GR0 = -94600 + 89.37T J/mol
Calculate the equilibrium composition of the gas mixture at P = 1 atm and T = 1000K. Perform
the same calculation for T = 900K and T = 1100K. How much heat is evolved in each case?
Which direction does the reaction shift in each case? Explain in terms of Le Chatelier’s principle
