EXAMPLE: Add butane to a reaction mixture with butane and isobutane in equilibrium at 25 °C. The equilibrium constant at 25 °C is 2.5. Butane ⇌ Isobutane isobutane 1.25 x K 2.5 Q butane 2.00 x Initial (mol L‐1) 0.500 1.25
Concentration immediately on immediately on adding butane (mol L‐1) Change in concentration to reestablish equilibrium (mol L‐1) Equilibrium (mol...
