Unformatted text preview: 2 CO 3 ) accumulates when the concentration of CO 2 is high. A higher concentration of CO 2 produces a faster reaction due to more frequent molecular collisions. At low CO 2 concentration, the reaction moves toward the left, causing carbonic acid to break down and form CO 2 + H 2 O. An equilibrium occurs when the rate of the forward reaction is equal to the rate of the reverse reaction. Important Concepts Regarding Covalent Bonds Energy and Covalent Bonds Energy is often defined as the ability to cause change. For example, movement requires energy. Energy is required to form a covalent bond and energy is released when a Covalent bond is broken. Covalent bonds can therefore be used by organisms to store energy. The energy that is stored can be used to perform work....
