CHM 206 Spring 2008 Dr. Logan CH 16 Learning Objectives Chapter 16: Principles of Reactivity: Chemical Equilibria Know and be able to use the key equations , found on p. 789, as well as the ones described below. Understand the nature and characteristics of chemical equilibria a. Chemical reactions are reversible and equilibria are dynamic : a reaction is at equilibrium when the rate of the forward reaction is equal to the rate of the reverse reaction. b. Understand that the magnitude of K and the time required for a reaction to reach equilibrium are not related. Understand the significance of the equilibrium constant, K, and the reaction quotient, Q. a. Write the reaction quotient, Q, for a chemical reaction. Know that when the system is at equilibrium, Q = K, the equilibrium constant for the chemical reaction as written, at a given temperature . b. Know that Q and K are dimensionless. c. Recognize that the concentrations of solids, pure liquids, and solvents (e.g., water) that are present are not included in the equilibrium constant expression.
