Reaction Quotient-Q- Or Trial K

The Keq is a constant- a number that does not change Increasing the Temperature of an endothermic equilibrium shifts right and increases the Keq Increasing a [Reactant] shifts right but maintains the Keq Only temperature changes the Keq Changing the volume, pressure, or any concentration, does not change the Keq.

K trial How can you tell if a system is in equilibrium or not? Calculate a trial Keq or Q- reaction quotient. Use initial concentrations in the equilibrium expression to evaluate.

K eq KtKt How can you tell if a system is in equilibrium or not? Calculate a trial K eq. Put initial concentrations into the equilibrium expression and evaluate. If K t = K eq equilibrium If K t > K eq KtKt KtKt If K t < K eq Shifts right( to products) Shifts left (to reactants) 52035

Shifts right! 2NH 3(g) ⇄ N 2(g) + 3H 2(g) Keq = 10 1.10.0 moles of NH 3, 15.0 moles of N 2, and 10.0 moles of H 2 are put in a 5.0 L container. Is the system in equilibrium and how will it shift if it is not? 2.0 M3.0 M2.0 M Kt= [N 2 ][H 2 ] 3 [NH 3 ] 2 =(3)(2) 3 = 6 (2) 2 Not in equilibrium Kt < Keq

Shifts left! 2NH 3(g) ⇄ N 2(g) + 3H 2(g) Keq = 10 2.4.56 x 10 -5 moles of NH 3, 5.62 x 10 -4 moles of N 2, and 2.66 x 10 -2 moles of H 2 are put in a 500.0 mL container. Is the system in equilibrium and how will it shift if it is not? 9.12 x 10 -5 M1.124 x 10 -5 M5.32 x 10 -2 M Kt= [N 2 ][H 2 ] 3 [NH 3 ] 2 =(1.124 x 10 -3 )(5.32 x 10 -2 ) 3 = 20.3 (9.12 x 10 -5 ) 2 Not in equilibrium Kt > Keq

3.If 4.00 moles of CO, 4.00 moles H 2 O, 6.00 moles CO 2, and 6.00 moles H 2 are placed in a 2.00 L container at 670 o C. CO (g) + H 2 O (g) ⇄ CO 2(g) + H 2(g) Keq = 1.0 Is the system at equilibrium? Calculate all equilibrium concentrations. Shifts left!

Example F A 1.0 L reaction vessel contained 1.0 mol of SO 2, 4.0 mol of NO 2, 4.0 mol of SO 3 and 4.0 mol of NO at equilibrium according to SO 2(g) + NO 2(g) SO 3(g) + NO (g). If 3.0 mol of SO 2 is added to the mixture, what will be the new concentration of NO when equilibrium is re-attained?

SO 2(g) + NO 2(g) SO 3(g) + NO (g).
