Equilibruim - Revision
Dynamic equilibruim occurs when there is no further change in the concentrations of the reactants
and products because the forward and backwards reactions are happening at the same rate.

The equilibrium constant, Kc
In general, for a reaction,

xA + yB nC + mD

where x, y,…

xA + yB nC + mD

where x, y, n and m are stoichiometric amounts in the equation,


Kp = (pC)n(pD)m


Temperature, pressure and the reaction itself affect Kp. The Kp equation never includes anything but
gases.

Relationship between the equilibrium constant and the total entropy change

Stotal = RlnK…
