  • Reversible Reactions
    • ONE WHERE THE PRODUCTS OF THE REACTION CAN THEMSELVES REACT TO PRODUCE THE ORIGINAL REACTANTS
    • Closed System= no reactants, products or energy can get in/out
    • Equilibrium means the amounts of reactants and products will reach a certain balance and stay there
    • Pressure
      • Changing pressure changes amount of products made
      • Many reactions have greater volume on one side, either of products or reactants
        • Raise pressure produce less volume
        • Lower pressure produce more volume
    • Reactions taking place at exactly same rate in both directions
    • Temperature
      • All reactions exothermic in one direction, endothermic other direction
      • Raise temperature - endothermic reaction will increase usage of the extra heat
      • Reduce temperature - exothermic reaction will increase, give out more heat
