Calculation of an Equilibrium Constant Objective : To use the Measurenet spectrometer to determine the equilibrium constant of a chemical reaction. This is a study of chemical equilibrium. Experimental Data : A) Standard Solution 0.2 M Fe(NO3)3 0.001 M NaSCN 0.1 M HNO3 Absorbance Values 1 10.0 mL 1 mL 14 mL 0.105 2 10.0 mL 2 mL 13 mL 0.299 3 10.0 mL 3 mL 12 mL 0.399 4 10.0 mL 4 mL 11 mL 0.484 B) Test Solution 0.002 M Fe(NO3)3 0.002 M NaSCN 0.1 M HNO3 Absorbance Values 5 10.0 mL 2 mL 8 mL 0.13 6 10.0 mL 4 mL 6 mL 0.135 7 10.0 mL 6 mL 4 mL 0.504 8 10.0 mL 8 mL 2 mL 0.727 Sample Calculations : Solution 1: M1V1 = M2V2 (0.001M)(1 ml) = (25 ml)(M) 0.001 25 M= 4 x 10 ^ -5 [Fe3+] Solution 5: M1V1 = M2V2 (0.002 M)(10 mL) = (20 mL)(M) M = 0.001 [SCN-] Solution 5: M1V1 = M2V2 (0.002 M)(2 mL) = (20 mL)(M) M = 0.0002 [Fe3+ ] and [SCN-]: ICE box: Fe3+ SCN- Fe(SCN)2 + Initial 0.001 0.0002 0 Change -0.0004 -0.00004
