Give the definition of a reversible reaction
A reaction which takes place in both forward and backward direction
1 of 6
What is dynamic equilibrium?
Where the forward and backward reactions occur at the same rate
2 of 6
State Le Chatelier's principle.
If a system at equilibrium is subjected to a change, the equilibrium tends to shift so as to minimise the effect of the change
3 of 6
State 3 ways of changing the position of equilibria
Changing concentration of reactants or products, pressure in reactions involving gases and temperature
4 of 6
How can we predict what the change will be?
using Le Chatelier's principle
5 of 6
How does a catalyst affect the position of equilibrium?
It does not effect position of equilibrium, but equilibrium is reached much faster
