Consider the following equilibrium process at 686 C
The equilibrium concentration of the reacting species are [CO]=0.050M, [H2]=0.045M, [CO2]=0.086M, and [H20]=0.040M. (a)Calculate the Kc for the reaction at 686 C. (b) If we add CO2 to increase its concentration to 0.50 mol/L, what will the concentration of all the gases be when equilibrium is reestablished.

I got (a) Kc= 0.52 but I'm having hard time getting part (b) because the answers are way different then what I'm getting. The answers should be:
[CO]=0.075M, [H2]=0.020M, [CO2]=0.48M, [H20]=0.065M.

At certain temperature the following reactions have the constant shown:

S(s) + O2(g) = SO2(g)

2S(s) + 3O2(g) = 2SO3(g)

Calculate the equilibrium constant Kc for the following reaction at that temperature:

2S02(s) + O2(g) = 2SO3(g)

This one was specially hard because time to time my calculator couldn't do it because of overflow.
