Equilibrium Sample Exercise 15.5 Combining Equilibrium Expressions Given the reactions determine the value of K c for the reaction Solution Analyze We are given two equilibrium equations and the corresponding equilibrium constants and are asked to determine the equilibrium constant for a third equation, which is related to the first two. Plan We cannot simply add the first two equations to get the third. Instead, we need to determine how to manipulate the equations to come up with the steps that will add to give us the desired equation.
Equilibrium Sample Exercise 15.5 Combining Equilibrium Expressions Continued Solve If we multiply the first equation by 2 and make the corresponding change to its equilibrium constant (raising to the power 2), we get Reversing the second equation and again making the corresponding change to its equilibrium constant (taking the reciprocal) gives Now we have two equations that sum to give the net equation, and we can multiply the individual K c values to get the desired equilibrium constant.

Equilibrium Sample Exercise 15.9 Calculating K from Initial and Equilibrium Concentrations Solution Analyze We are given the initial concentrations of H 2 and l 2 and the equilibrium concentration of HI. We are asked to calculate the equilibrium constant K c for Solve First, we tabulate the initial and equilibrium concentrations of as many species as we can. We also provide space in our table for listing the changes in concentrations. As shown, it is convenient to use the chemical equation as the heading for the table. Second, we calculate the change in HI concentration, which is the difference Between the equilibrium and initial values: A closed system initially containing 1.000 10 3 M H 2 and 2.000 10 3 M I 2 at 448 C is allowed to reach equilibrium, and at equilibrium the HI concentration is 1.87 10 3 M. Calculate K c at 448 C for the reaction taking place, which is Plan We construct a table to find equilibrium concentrations of all species and then use the equilibrium concentrations to calculate the equilibrium constant. Change in [HI] = 1.87 10 3 M 0 = 1.87 10 3 M
Equilibrium Third, we use the coefficients in the balanced equation to relate the change in [HI] to the changes in [H 2 ] and [I 2 ]: Fourth, we calculate the equilibrium concentrations of H 2 and I 2, using initial concentrations and changes in concentration. The equilibrium concentration equals the initial concentration minus that consumed: Our table now looks like this (with equilibrium concentrations in blue for emphasis): Continued [H 2 ] = 1.000 10 3 M 0.935 10 3 M = 0.065 10 3 M [I 2 ] = 2.000 10 3 M 0.935 10 3 M = 1.065 10 3 M Notice that the entries for the changes are negative when a reactant is consumed and positive when a product is formed.

Equilibrium Sample Exercise 15.10 Predicting the Direction of Approach to Equilibrium Solution Analyze We are given a volume and initial molar amounts of the species in a reaction and asked to determine in which direction the reaction must proceed to achieve equilibrium. Plan We can determine the starting concentration of each species in the reaction mixture. We can then substitute the starting concentrations into the equilibrium-constant expression to calculate the reaction quotient, Q c. Comparing the magnitudes of the equilibrium constant, which is given, and the reaction quotient will tell us in which direction the reaction will proceed. Solve The initial concentrations are The reaction quotient is therefore At 448 C the equilibrium constant K c for the reaction is 50.5. Predict in which direction the reaction proceeds to reach equilibrium if we start with 2.0 10 2 mol of HI, 1.0 10 2 mol of H 2, and 3.0 10 2 of I 2 in a 2.00-L container. Because Q c < K c, the concentration of HI must increase and the concentrations of H 2 and I 2 must decrease to reach equilibrium; the reaction as written proceeds left to right to attain equilibrium.
