Chemical Equilibrium Chapter 15 Chemistry the Central Science 12th Ed.

2
Chemical Equilibrium The state where the concentrations of all reactants and products remain constant with time. On the molecular level, there is frantic activity. Equilibrium is not static, but is a highly dynamic situation.

**The Concept of Equilibrium**

Chemical equilibrium occurs when a reaction and its reverse reaction proceed at the same rate. © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

4
**The Concept of Equilibrium**

As a system approaches equilibrium, both the forward and reverse reactions are occurring. At equilibrium, the forward and reverse reactions are proceeding at the same rate. © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

5
**A System at Equilibrium**

Once equilibrium is achieved, the amount of each reactant and product remains constant. © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

6
**Depicting Equilibrium**

Since, in a system at equilibrium, both the forward and reverse reactions are being carried out, we write its equation with a double arrow: N2O4(g) 2NO2(g) © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

7
**The Equilibrium Constant**

Forward reaction: N2O4(g) 2NO2(g) Rate law: Rate = kf[N2O4] © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

8
**The Equilibrium Constant**

Reverse reaction: 2 NO2(g) N2O4(g) Rate law: Rate = kr[NO2]2 © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

9
**The Equilibrium Constant**

Therefore, at equilibrium Ratef = Rater kf[N2O4] = kr[NO2]2 Rewriting this, it becomes kf kr [NO2]2 [N2O4] = © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

10
**The Equilibrium Constant**

The ratio of the rate constants is a constant at that temperature, and the expression becomes Keq = kf kr [NO2]2 [N2O4] = © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

11
**The Equilibrium Constant**

Consider the generalized reaction aA + bB cC + dD The equilibrium expression for this reaction would be Kc = [C]c[D]d [A]a[B]b © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

12
Problem Suppose that the gas-phase reactions A B and B A are both elementary processes with rate constants of 3.8 × 10−2s−1 and 3.1 × 10−1s−1, respectively. What is the value of the equilibrium constant for the equilibrium A B. Which is greater at equilibrium, the partial pressure of A or the partial pressure of B? Explain.

**Equilibrium Expression**

4NH3(g) + 7O2(g) 4NO2(g) + 6H2O(g)

16
**Notes on Equilibrium Expressions (EE)**

The Equilibrium Expression for a reaction is the reciprocal of that for the reaction written in reverse. When the equation for a reaction is multiplied by n, EEnew = (EEoriginal)n The units for K depend on the reaction being considered.

17
**Manipulating Equilibrium Constants**

The equilibrium constant of a reaction in the reverse reaction is the reciprocal of the equilibrium constant of the forward reaction: Kc = = at 100 C [NO2]2 [N2O4] N2O4(g) 2NO2(g) Kc = = 4.72 at 100 C [N2O4] [NO2]2 N2O4(g) 2NO2(g) © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

18
**Manipulating Equilibrium Constants**

The equilibrium constant of a reaction that has been multiplied by a number is the equilibrium constant raised to a power that is equal to that number: Kc = = at 100 C [NO2]2 [N2O4] N2O4(g) 2NO2(g) Kc = = (0.212)2 at 100 C [NO2]4 [N2O4]2 4NO2(g) 2N2O4(g) © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

19
**Manipulating Equilibrium Constants**

The equilibrium constant for a net reaction made up of two or more steps is the product of the equilibrium constants for the individual steps. © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

**K v. Kp For jA + kB lC + mD Kp = K(RT)n**

n = sum of coefficients of gaseous products minus sum of coefficients of gaseous reactants.

21
**The Equilibrium Constant**

Since pressure is proportional to concentration for gases in a closed system, the equilibrium expression can also be written Kp = (PCc) (PDd) (PAa) (PBb) © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

22
**Relationship Between Kc and Kp**

From the ideal-gas law we know that PV = nRT Rearranging it, we get P = RT n V © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

23
**Relationship Between Kc and Kp**

Plugging this into the expression for Kp,,for each substance, the relationship between Kc and Kp becomes Kp = Kc (RT)n where n = (moles of gaseous product) (moles of gaseous reactant) © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

24
**Heterogeneous Equilibria**

. . . are equilibria that involve more than one phase. CaCO3(s) CaO(s) + CO2(g) K = [CO2] The position of a heterogeneous equilibrium does not depend on the amounts of pure solids or liquids present.

25
**The Concentrations of Solids and Liquids Are Essentially Constant**

Therefore, the concentrations of solids and liquids do not appear in the equilibrium expression. PbCl2(s) Pb2+(aq) + 2Cl(aq) Kc = [Pb2+] [Cl]2 © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

26
**CaCO3(s) CaO(s) + CO2(g)**

27
Reaction Quotient . . . helps to determine the direction of the move toward equilibrium. The law of mass action is applied with initial concentrations.

28
**The Reaction Quotient (Q)**

Q gives the same ratio the equilibrium expression gives, but for a system that is not at equilibrium. To calculate Q, one substitutes the initial concentrations on reactants and products into the equilibrium expression. © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

**Reaction Quotient (continued)**

**Solving Equilibrium Problems**

1. Balance the equation. 2. Write the equilibrium expression. 3. List the initial concentrations. 4. Calculate Q and determine the shift to equilibrium.

32
**Solving Equilibrium Problems (continued)**

5. Define equilibrium concentrations. 6. Substitute equilibrium concentrations into equilibrium expression and solve. 7. Check calculated concentrations by calculating K.

33
**Le Châtelier’s Principle**

“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.” © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

**Effects of Changes on the System**

1. Concentration: The system will shift away from the added component. 2. Temperature: K will change depending upon the temperature (treat the energy change as a reactant). AN15.002

37
**Effects of Changes on the System (continued)**

3. Pressure: a. Addition of inert gas does not affect the equilibrium position. b. Decreasing the volume shifts the equilibrium toward the side with fewer moles. AN15.003
