Ashlynn Stahl 11/22/2019 Chem Lab I Equilibrium Constant of a Reaction Post Lab 1) Looking at you data, what was your equilibrium constant (Kc)? Our equilibrium constant for test tube #1 as 84.125, #2 was 73.917, #3 was 66.825, and #4 was 64.33. Calculations: #1. Kc = 3.365 x 10 -5 / (.001)(.0004) = 84.125 #2. Kc = 4.435 xx 10 -5 / (.001)(.0006) = 73.917 #3. Kc = 5.346 x 10 -5 / (.001)(.0008) = 66.825 #4. Kc = 6.433 x 10 -5 / (.001)(.001) = 64.33 2)Explain the concept of calibration using a graph and description (Can be in terms of Beer’s Law or in general). A calibration curve or standard curve on a graph is used to determine the concentration of a substance in a sample by comparing the unknown sample to a constant set of samples with known concentrations. 4)For the reaction N H 3 + H + + N H + 4 +at 20.0∘ C, the equilibrium concentrations were as follows: NH 3 =2.0 x 10 -4 M, H + =2.0 x 10 -4 M, and NH 4 + =18.0M. Calculate the equilibrium constant for the reaction. What does this mean in terms of which 'side" of the equation

Kc= [ 18.0 ] [ 2.0 × 10 − 4 ] × [ 2.0 × 10 − 4 ] ¿ [ 18.0 ] [ 4 × 10 − 8 ] = 4.5 × 10 8 This means that the right side of the equation is favored because the equilibrium constant is much larger than one. 5)What does a very small equilibrium constant mean? (2.5X10-10 , as an example) A very small equilibrium constant means that the reactants or, left side of the equation is being favored.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
