1 Equilibrium Reactions are reversible c A + B C + D ( forward) c C + D A + B (reverse) c Initially there is only A and B so only the forward reaction is possible c As C and D build up, the reverse reaction speeds up while the forward reaction slows down. c Eventually the rates are equal Reaction Rate Time Forward Reaction Reverse reaction Equilibrium What is equal at Equilibrium? c Rates are equal c Concentrations are not. c Rates are determined by concentrations and activation energy. c The concentrations do not change at equilibrium. c or if the reaction is verrrry slooooow. Law of Mass Action c For any reaction c j A + k B l C + m D c K = [C] l [D] m PRODUCTS power [A] j [B] k REACTANTS power c K is called the equilibrium constant. c is how we indicate a reversible reaction Playing with K c If we write the reaction in reverse. c l C + m D j A + k B c Then the new equilibrium constant is c K ’ = [A] j [B] k = 1/K [C] l [D] m

2 Playing with K c If we multiply the equation by a constant c nj A + nk B nl C + nm D c Then the equilibrium constant is c K’ = [C] nl [D] nm ([C] l [D] m ) n = K n [A] nj [B] nk = ([A] j [B] k ) n The units for K c Are determined by the various powers and units of concentrations. c They depend on the reaction. K is CONSTANT c At any temperature. c Temperature affects rate. c The equilibrium concentrations don’t have to be the same, only K. c Equilibrium position is a set of concentrations at equilibrium. c There are an unlimited number. Equilibrium Constant One for each Temperature Calculate K c N 2 + 3H 2 2NH 3 c Initial At Equilibrium c [N 2 ] 0 =1.000 M [N 2 ] = 0.921M c [H 2 ] 0 =1.000 M [H 2 ] = 0.763M c [NH 3 ] 0 =0 M [NH 3 ] = 0.157M Calculate K c N 2 + 3H 2 2NH 3 c Initial At Equilibrium c [N 2 ] 0 = 0 M [N 2 ] = 0.399 M c [H 2 ] 0 = 0 M [H 2 ] = 1.197 M c [NH 3 ] 0 = 1.000 M [NH 3 ] = 0.203M c K is the same no matter what the amount of starting materials
