Rate of formation of \(\sf SO_3\) according to the reaction \(\sf 2SO_2+O_2 \rightarrow 2SO_3\) is \(\sf 1.6 \times 10^{3}~Kg.min^{1}\). Rate at which \(\sf SO_2\) reacts is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0According to me it should be either \(\sf 1.6 \times 10^{3} or ~8 \times 10^{4}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\sf \Large \frac{1}{2}\frac{d[SO_2]}{dt}=\frac{1}{2}\frac{d[SO_3]}{dt} \), isn't that correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Umm...but the answer key given says it should be \(\sf 1.28 \times 10^{3}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ d[SO _{2}] }{ dt }= \frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\frac{ d[SO _{3}] }{ dt }\] right? So I think u are correct ! How? Isn't the rate of formation of SO3 equal to rate of disappearance of SO2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, Thnks. I think the answer key is incorrect!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But can you reconfirm what the rate equation will be ? Wil it be \(\sf \Large \frac{1}{2}\frac{d[SO_2]}{dt}=\frac{1}{2}\frac{d[SO_3]}{dt} \) or the one you wrote?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this one is correct I agree ! But The answer won't be the same isn't it !

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If they are asking rate of disappearance of SO2 then it would be same as that of SO3 but if they mean the rate of reaction it should be half i.e. 8 X !0^4. that's what I think.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think it would have the same value. 1.6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, cz they are asking the rate at which SO2 reacts which sounds more like its individual rate. All right thanks a bunch for your time. really appreciate it c;
