Homework Help: P. Chemistry

The equilibrium 2 SO2(g) + O2(g) 2 SO3(g) has the value K = 2.5 1010 at 500. K. Find the value of K for each of the following reactions at the same temperature.

(a) SO2(g) + 1/2 O2(g) SO3(g)
K =

(b) SO3(g) SO2(g) + 1/2 O2(g)
K =

(c) 3 SO2(g) + 3/2 O2(g) 3 SO3(g)

I attempted to solve this by first finding Kc using the first equation given...I used Kc=K/ (RT)^delta n where delta n= gas products-gas reactants.

I found Kc to be 1.04E12 and then plugged that in to find K for each of the following reactions..however each of my answers was incorrect so I must not be doing this right.
