Aim: How can you determine if a system has reached equilibrium? QQ: What are the different values that K eq can have, and what do they tell us about the reaction? Do Now: What does it really mean when an ionic solid is “slightly soluble?” Solubility Saturated solutions exist at equilibrium: AB (s) A + (aq) + B - (aq) Write the equilibrium expression for this system: K sp = [A + ] [B - ] *Ignore solids and liquids! K sp Solubility Product Constant Measures the solubility of ionic compounds in water. The bigger K sp is, the more soluble the salt! Practice: Write the dissociation equation and Ksp expression for each compound: BaSO 4 Ca(OH) 2 PbI 2 Na 3 PO 4 Don’t forget about the coefficients! Equilibrium Systems Reversible reactions may not always be at equilibrium… Equilibrium Quotient (Q): used to determine whether a system has reached equilibrium Q is calculated the same way as K eq Q = [products] / [reactants] K eq = Q System at equilibrium K eq > Q Reaction has to shift to the products side (forward reaction) to reach equilibrium

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
