Once equilibrium is achieved, the amount of each reactant and product remains constant.
N2O4 (g) 2 NO2 (g)
Rate = kf [N2O4]
2 NO2 (g) N2O4 (g)
Rate = kr [NO2]2
Plugging this into the expression for Kp for each substance, the relationship between Kc and Kp becomes
n = (moles of gaseous product) − (moles of gaseous reactant)
As you can see, the ratio of [NO2]2 to [N2O4] remains constant at this temperature no matter what the initial concentrations of NO2 and N2O4 are.
Both can be obtained by dividing the density of the substance by its molar mass—and both of these are constants at constant temperature.
Pb2+ (aq) + 2 Cl−(aq)The Concentrations of Solids and Liquids Are Essentially Constant
Therefore, the concentrations of solids and liquids do not appear in the equilibrium expression
Kc = [Pb2+] [Cl−]2
2 HI (g)Equilibrium Calculations
A closed system initially containing
1.000 x 10−3 M H2 and 2.000 x 10−3 M I2
At 448C is allowed to reach equilibrium. Analysis of the equilibrium mixture shows that the concentration of HI is 1.87 x 10−3 M. Calculate Kc at 448C for the reaction taking place, which is
the system is at equilibrium.
there is too much product and the equilibrium shifts to the left.
there is too much reactant, and the equilibrium shifts to the right.
“If a system at equilibrium is disturbed by a change in temperature, pressure, or the concentration of one of the components, the system will shift its equilibrium position so as to counteract the effect of the disturbance.”
