AP.Chem: TRA‑8 (EU), TRA‑8.A (LO), TRA‑8.A.1 (EK), TRA‑8.A.2 (EK)


2SOX2(g)+OX2(g)2SOX3(g)\ce{2SO2}(g) + \ce{O2}(g) \rightleftharpoons \ce{2SO3}(g)
After the system above reaches equilibrium, additional OX2(g)\ce{O2}(g) is injected into the reaction flask at a time t, start subscript, 1, end subscript while the temperature is held constant.
Which of the following graphs best shows the rates of the forward and reverse reactions as a function of time?
