1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The gas stream from a sulfur burner is composed of 15-mol% SO2, 20-mol% O2, and 65-mol% N2. This gas stream at 1 bar and 480 C enters a catalytic converter, where the SO2 is further oxidized to SO3. Find the equilibrium conversion of SO2. The equilibrium constant for the reaction SO2 + 1/2 O2 ⇔SO3 is 87.824 at 480C. What would be the equilibrium conversion of the reactor if pure oxygen were used under the same conditions? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I am not sure if I am going about this the right way, but I am wondering if I am how I can obtain a numerical solution for this non-linear algebraic equation, not sure how to use matlab or polymath to solve it.
