  • Equilibria
    • A balance of reactants and products is reached
      • Concentration does not change
    • Concentration of reactants is greater than products- equilibria is LEFT
      • Concentration of products is greater than reactants- equilibria is RIGHT
    • Most economic yield
      • Catalysts speed up the reaction
        • Untitled
      • High temperatures, exothermic reaction
        • Equilibrium to the left
    • Only works in a closed system
      • Chemicals cannot "get up"
    • Temperature, pressure and concentration
      • (Temperature) Less product is made, equilibrium moves to the left
      • (Pressure) more product is made, equilibrium moves to the right
    • Dynamic- both reactions are happening at the same time
    • Contact process- sulphur dioxide and oxygen
      • Vanadium pentoxide- catalyst
