Unformatted text preview: of P4 and Cl2 will begin to decrease and the concentration of PCl3 will begin to increase. These concentrations will keep changing until they reach equilibrium, at which point the relative concentrations stop changing. We can write equilibrium expressions for every single equilibrium reaction, using the ratio of the concentrations of species present at equilibrium, where in general K = [Products]/[Reactants]. For the formation of phosphorous trichloride, K = [PCl3]4/[P4]...
