“Old Chemists Never Die; they just reach

EQUILIBRIUM!”

All physical and chemical changes TEND toward a

state of equilibrium.

Dynamic Equilibrium

The net result of a dynamic equilibrium is that no

change in the system is evident.

Le Chatelier’s Principle - If a change is made in a

system at equilibrium, the equilibrium will shift in such

a way so as to reduce the effect of the change.

Apply

Pressure

Pressure applied to the system at equilibrium caused it to

shift until a new equilibrium was established.

Reaction Quotient vs.

Equilibrium Constant

Class Problem 14.1 -The concentration of N2O4 =

concentration of NO2 = 0.0125 M in a reaction vessel.

The equilibrium constant for N2O4 (g) = 2 NO2 (g) is

0.004 63. Calculate QC and state which direction the

reaction will go.

Class Problem 14.2 -If [O2] = 0.21 M and [O3] = 6.0 x 10-8 M, what is the value of the KC for the equilibrium, 2 O3 (g) = 3 O2 (g)?

Chemical Equilibrium

Heterogeneous Reaction -A reaction that takes place in more than one phase or state. These reactions occur at the interface between phases - on the surface of liquids and solids.

At a constant temperature, the concentration of a solid or liquid component remains constant in a heterogeneous equilibrium. WHY?

Since the concentration is constant, it can be considered a part of the equilibrium constant and, thus, does NOT appear in the KC expression.

C (s, graphite) + CO2 (g) = 2 CO (g)

KC = [CO]2

Chemical Equilibrium

Class Problem 14.3 -A mixture that was initially 0.005 00 M in H2 (g) and 0.012 50 M in I2 (g), and contained no HI (g), was heated at 425.4oC until equilibrium was reached. The resulting equilibrium concentration of I2 (g) was found to be 0.007 72 M. What is the value of the KC for this equilibrium at 425.4oC?

Class Problem 14.4a. -When 1.000 mol each of H2O (g) and CO (g) are introduced into an empty 1.000 L vessel at 959 K and allowed to come to equilibrium, the equilibrium mixture contains 0.422 mol H2O (g). Find KC for

0 = 0.88 x2 – 11.3 x + 15.0 (ax2 + bx + c)

Dust off the old Quadratic Formula:

-(-11.3) ± [(-11.3)2 – 4(0.88)(15.0)]1/2

2(0.88)

= 11 and 1.5 ! Which is RIGHT?

Chemical Equilibrium

What is ‘x’? It is the concentration of H2 and CO2

at equilibrium! But…you can’t have more hydrogen gas than

you have of reactants to begin with!

Thus, 11 M can’t be right!

1.5 M is the only sensible answer!

Chemical Equilibrium

x = 1.5 M Therefore:

[H2O]eq = 0.5 M [CO]eq = 2.5 M

[H2]eq = [CO2]eq = 1.5 M

Check: Kc = (1.5M)2/(0.5M)(2.5M) = 1.8

There are no units in this case!

What if you don’t remember the quadratic

formula??

Use Successive

Approximation!!

Class Exercise 14.5: Consider the following reaction for the decomposition of hydrogen sulfide:

2 H2S 2 H2 (g) + S2 (g) KC = 1.67 x 10-7

800o C

A 0.500-L vessel initially contains 1.25 x 10-1 mol of H2S.

Find the equilibrium concentrations of H2 and S2.

Equation: 2 H2S (g) 2 H2 (g) + S2 (g)

Plug it back in to check:

4x3

(2.50 x 10-1 – 2x)2

x3 = 2.07 x 10-11>>>>>

x = 2.74 x 10-4

There appears to be a mistake in these calculations!

Please check carefully and see if you can see where it is!

Complex example of Successive Approximation

Do NOT Panic!

This is NOT a typical Problem!

It is a Worst Case Scenario!!!

Any Exam Problem will

be MUCH Shorter!!

Class Exercise 14.5: In an experiment starting with

[N2O4]I = 0.020 00 M and [NO2]I = 0.000 00 M, [N2O4]eq

= 0.004 52 M. (a) What is [NO2]eq? (b) What is the

value for Kc?

The larger KC is, the closer to completion the rxn is!
