As we learnt in

Law of Chemical equilibrium -

At a given temperature, the product of concentration of the reaction products raised to the respective stoichiometric coefficient in the balanced chemical equation divided by the product of concentration of the reactants raised to their individual stoichiometric coefficients has a constant value.

- wherein

aA+bB\rightleftharpoons cC+dD


K_{c}=\frac{[C]^{c\:[D]^{d}}}{[A]^{a}\:[B]^{b}}

[A],\:[B],\:[C]\:[D]

are equilibrium concentration

 

 

Given is

S+S^{2-}\leftrightharpoons S{_2}^{2-}, K_{1}=1.7

2S+S^{2-}\leftrightharpoons S_{3}^{2-}, K_{2}=5.3

So, the desired reaction is 

S_{2}^{2-}+S\leftrightharpoons S_{3}^{2-}, K_{3}

K_{1}=\frac{S_{2}^{2-}}{S^{2-}}K_{2}= \frac{S_{3}^{2-}}{S^{2-}}

Clearly K_{3}=\frac{K_{2}}{K_{1}}=\frac{[S_{3}^{2-}]}{[S_{2}^{2-}]}=\frac{53}{1.7}

                                                        = 3.11
