An important step in the manufacture of sulfuric acidis the gas-phase oxidation reaction So2, + 1/202 = SO3 Compute th equilibrium conversion of sulfur dioxide to sulfur. trioxide over the

temperature range of 0 to 1400°C for a reactant mixture consisting of initially pure sulfur dioxide and a stoichiometric amount of air at a total pressure of 1.013 bar. (Air contains 21 mol % oxygen and 79 mol % nitrogen.)
