Ch. 13 Equilibrium
Chemical Equilibrium Z The state where the concentrations of all reactants and products remain constant with time. Z On the molecular level, there is frantic activity. Equilibrium is not static, but is a highly dynamic situation. Z (BDVD)
Dynamic Equilibrium Z Reactions continue to take place. Z A + B C + D ( forward) Z C + D A + B (reverse) Z Initially there is only A and B so only the forward reaction is possible Z As C and D build up, the reverse reaction speeds up while the forward reaction slows down. Z Eventually the rates are equal.
Reaction Rate Time Forward Reaction Reverse reaction Equilibrium
What is equal at Equilibrium? Z Rates are equal. Z Concentrations are not. Z Rates are determined by concentrations and activation energy. Z The concentrations do not change at equilibrium.
13.2 Law of Mass Action Z j A + k B l C + m D Z j, k, l, m are coefficients Z The law of mass action is represented by the equilibrium expression: Z K = [C] l [D] m PRODUCTS power [A] j [B] k REACTANTS power Z K is called the equilibrium constant. Z is how we indicate a reversible reaction. [x] represents concentration.
Playing with K Z If we write the reaction in reverse. Z l C + m D j A + k B Z Then the new equilibrium constant is Z K = [A] j [B] k = 1/K [C] l [D] m
Playing with K Z If we multiply the equation by a constant Z nj A + nk B nl C + nm D Z Then the equilibrium constant is Z K = [A] nj [B] nk = ([A] j [B] k ) n = K n [C] nl [D] nm ( [C] l [D] m ) n
K is CONSTANT Z At any temperature. Z Temperature affects rate. Z The equilibrium concentrations dont have to be the same only K. Z Equilibrium position is a set of concentrations at equilibrium. Z One value at each temperature, but there are an unlimited number of possibilities. Z Usually written without units.

Calculate K Z N 2 (g) + 3H 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) Z In the above reaction, at a given temperature. K = Z Calculate the value of K in the following reactions. #21ab Z 1/2N 2 (g) + 3/2H 2 (g) NH 3 (g) Z 2NH 3 (g) N 2 (g) + 3H 2 (g)
Calculate K Z N 2 (g) + 3H 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) Z Initial At Equilibrium Z [N 2 ] 0 =1.000 M [N 2 ] = 0.921M Z [H 2 ] 0 =1.000 M [H 2 ] = 0.763M Z [NH 3 ] 0 =0 M [NH 3 ] = 0.157M
Calculate K Z N 2 (g) + 3H 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) Z Initial At Equilibrium Z [N 2 ] 0 = 0 M [N 2 ] = M Z [H 2 ] 0 = 0 M [H 2 ] = M Z [NH 3 ] 0 = M [NH 3 ] = 0.203M Z K is the same no matter what the amount of starting materials (at the same temperature).
13.3 Equilibrium and Pressure Z Some reactions are gaseous Z PV = nRT Z P = (n/V)RT Z P = CRT Z C is a concentration in moles/Liter Z C = P/RT
Equilibrium and Pressure 2 SO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) 2SO 3 (g) Z In term of partial pressures: K p = (P SO3 ) 2 (P SO2 ) 2 (P O2 ) Z In terms of concentration: K c = [SO 3 ] 2 [SO 2 ] 2 [O 2 ]
Practice Z N 2 (g) + 3H 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) Z In the reaction above, the following equilibrium pressures were observed. Z P NH3 = 0.89 atm Z P N2 = 0.62 atm Z P H2 = atm Z Calculate the value for the equilibrium constant K p at this temperature.
K v. K p Z For j A + k B l C + m D K p = K(RT) n n = sum of coefficients of gaseous products minus sum of coefficients of gaseous reactants.
Practice K p = K(RT) n Z At 25°C, K = 2.01 x 10 4 for the reaction Z CO (g) + Cl 2(g) COCl 2(g) Z What is the value of K p at this temperature?
Practice #32 Z For which reaction in #31 is K p = K?
Homogeneous Equilibria Z So far every example dealt with reactants and products where all were in the same phase. Z We can use K in terms of either concentration or pressure. Z Units depend on reaction.
13.4 Heterogeneous Equilibria Z Are equilibria that involve more than one phase. Z If the reaction involves pure solids or pure liquids, the concentration of the solid or the liquid doesnt change. Z The position of a heterogeneous equilibrium does not depend on the amounts of pure solids or liquids present. Z As long as they are not used up we can leave them out of the equilibrium expression.
For Example Z H 2 (g) + I 2 (s) 2HI(g) Z K = [HI] 2 [ H 2 ][ I 2 ] Z But the concentration of I 2 does not change, therefore: K = [HI] 2 [ H 2 ]
13.5 Applying the Equilibrium Constant Reactions with large K (>>1), essentially to completion. Large negative E. Z Reactions with small K (<<1) consist mostly of reactants. Z Time to reach equilibrium is related to rate and AE. It is not related to size of K.
The Reaction Quotient Z Tells you the directing the reaction will go to reach equilibrium Z Calculated the same as the equilibrium constant, but for a system not at equilibrium by using initial concentrations. Z Q = [Products] coefficient [Reactants] coefficient Z Compare value to equilibrium constant
What Q tells us Z If QK Too many products Shift to left Z If Q=K system is at equilibrium
Using the Reaction Quotient Z For the reaction Z 2NOCl(g) 2NO(g) + Cl 2 (g) Z K = 1.55 x M at 35ºC Z In an experiment 0.10 mol NOCl, mol NO(g) and mol Cl 2 are mixed in 2.0 L flask. Z Which direction will the reaction proceed to reach equilibrium?
Using the Reaction Quotient For the synthesis of ammonia at 500°C, the equilibrium constant is 6.0x Predict the direction in which the system will shift to reach equilibrium in each of the following cases. Ex a. [NH 3 ] 0 = 1.0 x M; [N 2 ] 0 = 1.0 x M; [H 2 ] 0 = 2.0 x M b. [NH 3 ] 0 = 1.0 x M; [N 2 ] 0 = 5.0 M; [H 2 ] 0 = 1.0 x M
Problems Involving Pressure For the reaction N 2 O 4 (g) 2NO 2 (g) K P = atm. At equilibrium, the pressure of N 2 O 4 was found to be 2.71 atm? Calculate the equilibrium pressure of NO 2 (g) EX.13.8
Problems Involving Pressure At a certain temperature a 1.00 L flask initially contained mol PCl 3 (g) and 8.70 x mol PCl 5 (g). After the system reached equilibrium, 2.00 x mol Cl 2 (g) was found in the flask. Calculate the equilibrium concentrations of all species and the value of K. EX.13.9 PCl 5(g) PCl 3(g) + Cl 2(g)

Intro to ICE 2 SO 3 (g) 2SO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) At a certain temperature mol SO 3 is placed into a 3.0 L rigid container. The SO 3 dissociates during the reaction. At equilibrium, 3.0 mol SO 2 is present. What is the value of K for this reaction? (#43)
Intro to ICE 2NH 3 N 2 + 3H 2 At a certain temperature. 4.0 mol NH 3 is introduced into a 2.0 L container. The NH 3 partially dissociates during the reaction. At equilibrium, 2.0 mol NH 3 remains. What is the value of K for this reaction? (#44) WAssign
What if youre not given equilibrium concentration? H 2 + F 2 2HF The Equilibrium constant for the above reaction is 115 at a certain temperature mol of each component was added to a L flask. Calculate the equilibrium concentrations of all species. (ex.13.11)
Practical Example Z H 2 (g) + F 2 (g) 2HF(g) Z K = 1.15 x 10 2 at 25ºC Z Calculate the equilibrium concentrations if a 3.00 L container initially contains 3.00 mol of H 2 and 6.00 mol F 2. Z [ H 2 ] 0 = 3.00 mol/3.00 L = 1.00 M Z [F 2 ] 0 = 6.00 mol/3.00 L = 2.00 M Z [HF] 0 = 0
Z Q= 0
Z For H 2 and F 2 the change must be -X Z Using to stoichiometry HF must be +2X Z Equilibrium = initial + change H 2 (g) F 2 (g) 2HF(g) Initial1.00 M2.00 M 0 M Change Equilibrium
Z Therefore, ice chart looks like this. Z Change in HF = twice change in H 2 H 2 (g) F 2 (g) 2HF(g) Initial1.00 M2.00 M 0 M Change-X -X +2X Equili X 2.00-X 2X
Z Now plug these values into the equilibrium expression Z K = 1.15 x 10 2 = ( 2X ) 2 (1.00- x )(2.00-x) Z Solving this gives us a quadratic equation. Quadratic Calculator H 2 (g) F 2 (g) 2HF(g) Initial1.00 M2.00 M 0 M Change-X -X +2X Equili X 2.00-X 2X
Z Now plug these values into the equilibrium expression Z K = 1.5 x 10 2 = ( 2X ) 2 (1.00- x )(2.00-x) Z Solving this gives us a quadratic equation. Z Quadratic gives us 2.14 mol/L and mol/L. Only is reasonable. H 2 (g) F 2 (g) 2HF(g) Initial1.00 M2.00 M 0 M Change-X -X +2X Equili X 2.00-X 2X
Z [ H 2 ] = 1.00 M M = 3.2 x M Z [F 2 ] = 2.00 M M = M Z [HF] = 2(0.968 M) = M Z If substituted into the equilibrium expression we get 1.13 x 10 2 which is very close to given K.
Practice H 2 O (g) + Cl 2 O (g) 2HClO (g) K = Z In an experiment 1.0 g H 2 O (g) and 2.0 g Cl 2 O are mixed in a 1.00 L flask. Z Calculate the equilibrium concentrations. (#48)

Define equilibrium concentrations. 6. Substitute equilibrium concentrations into equilibrium expression and solve. 7. Check calculated concentrations by calculating K.
Problems with small K K<.01
Process is the same Z Set up table of initial, change, and equilibrium concentrations. Z Choose X to be small. Z For this case it will be a product. Z For a small K the product concentration is small.
For example Z For the reaction 2NOCl 2NO +Cl 2 Z K= 1.6 x Z If 1.00 mol NOCl is put in a 2.0 L container, what are the equilibrium concentrations? Z K = [NO] 2 [Cl 2 ] = 1.6 x [NOCl] 2 Z [NOCl] 0 = 0.50M, [NO]& [Cl 2 ] =0
K = [NO] 2 [Cl 2 ] = (2x) 2 (x) = 1.6 x [NOCl] 2 ( x) 2 Z Since K is so small, we we can make an approximation that x = 0.50 Z This makes the math much easier. X = 1.0 x NOCl 2NO+Cl 2 Initial Change-2X +2X+X Equil X 2X X
5% Rule Z Many of the systems we will deal with have very small equilibrium constants. Z When this is the case, there will be very little shift to the right to reach equilibrium. Since x is so small, we will ignore it. However, the final value must be checked against the initial concentration. If the difference is less than 5%, then our assumption is valid. Z In the previous problem X = 1.0 x Z x = (1.0 x ) = 0.48 Z Is 1.0 x five percent or less than 0.50? Z 0.02/0.50 x 100 = 4%
Practice Problem Z For the reaction N 2 O 4(g) 2NO 2 (g) Z K = 4.0 x Z 1.0 mol N 2 O 4(g) is placed in a 10.0L vessel. Calculate the concentrations of all species at equilibrium. Z (#52)
Practice Problem Z For the reaction COCl 2(g) CO (g) + Cl 2 (g) Z K p = 6.8 x Z If COCl 2(g) at an initial pressure of 1.00 atm decomposes, calculate the equilibrium pressures of all species? Z (#54)
Practice Problem Z At 25°C, K p = 2.9 x Z NH 4 OCONH 2(s) 2NH 3g) + CO 2 (g) Z In an experiment, a certain amount of NH 4 OCONH 2(s) is placed in an evacuated rigid container and allowed to come to equilibrium. Calculated the total pressure in the container at equilibrium. Z (#55)
Practice Problem #56WA Z 2AsH 3(g) 2As (s) + 3H 2(g) Z In an experiment pure AsH 3 was placed in a rigid, sealed flask at a pressure of torr. After 48 hours the pressure was observed to be constant at torr. Z Calculate the Equilibrium pressure of H 2(g). Z Calculate K p for this reaction. (#56)
Le Chateliers Principle Z If a change is applied to a system at equilibrium, the position of the equilibrium will shift in a direction that tends to reduce the change. Z 3 Types of change: Concentration (adding or reducing reactant or product), Pressure, Temperature.
Change amounts of reactants and/or products Z Adding product makes Q>K Z Removing reactant makes Q>K Z Adding reactant makes Q
Change Pressure Z By changing volume. Z When volume is reduced, the system will move in the direction that has the least moles of gas. Z COCl 2(g) CO (g) + Cl 2 (g) Z When volume is increased, the system will move in the direction that has the greatest moles of gas. Z Because partial pressures (and conc.) change a new equilibrium must be reached. Z System tries to minimize the moles of gas.
Change in Pressure Z By adding an inert gas. Z Partial pressures of reactants and product are not changed. Z No effect on equilibrium position.
Change in Temperature Z Affects the rates of both the forward and reverse reactions. Z Doesnt just change the equilibrium position, changes the equilibrium constant. Z The direction of the shift depends on whether it is exo - or endothermic.
Exothermic H < 0 Z Releases heat. Z Think of heat as a product. Z N 2 (g) + 3H 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) + Heat Z Raising temperature push toward reactants. Z Shifts to left.
Endothermic H > 0 Z Absorbs heat. Z Think of heat as a reactant. Z Heat + COCl 2(g) CO (g) + Cl 2 (g) Z Raising temperature push toward products. Z Shifts to right.
Free Energy and Equilibrium G tells us spontaneity at current conditions. When will it stop? It will go to the lowest possible free energy which may be an equilibrium. At equilibrium G = 0, Q = K Gº = -RTlnK from [ G = Gº + RTlnK] Gº = 0 < 0 > 0 K = 1 > 1 < 1
