  1. 2SO2 + O2 ==> 2SO3

    equilibrium:
    SO3 = 3.61 x 10^-3 M

    SO3 must be the same (the coefficients are the same).
    O2 must be 1/2 the value (2 moles SO3 = 1 mole O2).
    Substitute into Keq and solve for Kc.

  3. I don't have 2.83

    Kc = (SO3)^2/(SO2)^2(O2)
    Substitute into this.
