Introduction to the Equilibrium law

[H2O]2

[H2]2[O2]

[H2]2[O2]

2H2(g) + O2(g)  2H2O (g)

2H2(g) + O2(g)  2H2O (g)

2H2(g) + O2(g)  2H2O (g)

2H2(g) + O2(g)  2H2O (g)

2H2(g) + O2(g)  2H2O (g)

Step 1: Set up the “equilibrium law” equation

Step 2: Product concentrations go in numerator

Step 3: Concentration in mass action expression is raised to the coefficient of the product

Step 4: Reactant concentrations go in denominator

Step 5: Concentrations in mass action expression are raised to the coefficients of reactants

• State (g, l, s, aq) may or may not be added at this point since we will only be dealing with gasses for this section. Later it will matter.

• The equilibrium law includes concentrations of products and reactants in mol/L (M)

• The value of Kc will depend on temperature, thus this is listed along with the Kc value

• Tabulated values of Kc are unitless

• By substituting equilibrium concentrations into equilibrium law, we can calculate Kc …

• Do RE 14.31, 35, 36, 37 (pg. 589)

When Kc  mass action expression

• We can use the equilibrium law to determine if an equation is at equilibrium or not

• If mass action expression equals equilibrium constant then equilibrium exists

Q - consider: C2H4(g) + H2O(g)  C2H5OH(g)

If Kc = 300, []s = 0.0197 M, 0.0200 M, 0.175 M which direction will the reaction need to shift?

[C2H5OH]

= 300

[C2H4][H2O]

444  300

444 must be reduced to 300. Thus, the top must decrease and the bottom must increase. A shift to left is required to establish equilibrium.

More equilibrium law problems

• Do RE 14.32, 33 (pg. 589). For each, state in which direction the reaction needs to shift

[PCl5]

[PCl3][Cl2]

[SO2][NO2]

88.9  85

Top must , bottom must -shift to left is needed
