Homework Help: Addition of equilibrium constants

  1. Nov 15, 2008 #1
    from where do chlorine monoxides form? I'm asking this because I'm just wondering if there is a way to direct all the oxygen radicals on its way to react with ozone to a whole bunch of chlorine monoxides to form oxygen gas. Is that possible or what???

    I'm a guy who likes to teach.

    Are you sure these are equilibrium and not rate constants?

    If you add reactions, you should multiply equilibrium constants - writte expressions for all thre reactions, mulitply first and the second, see what cancels out and what you are left with.
