Chapter Objectives for Chapter 15, Petrucci, 9th ed. - Edited for Chem. 1A03. 15 Principles of Chemical Equilibrium The most important objectives appear in bold font. Objectives (or parts of objectives) for which you are not responsible appear in red . 1. Understand the concept of dynamic equilibrium, as well as write chemical equilibrium expressions based on specific balanced chemical equations. 2 . Define the concept of activity (pure liquids/solids) and the approximation of using equilibrium concentrations in chemical equilibrium expressions. 3. Know and be able to modify chemical equilibrium expressions based on reverse reactions and combining two or more reactions in a process. 4. Convert K c into K p , and vice versa, for equilibria involving gases. 5. Understand the significance of the magnitude of equilibrium constant and predict the direction of a chemical reaction based on the reaction quotient, Q. 6. Apply Le Châtelier’s Principle for rationalizing the impact of changing reaction
