Equilibrium

HideShow resource information
What is dynamic equilibrium?
The composition of a reaction mixture does not change because both foreword and backward reactants are proceeding at the same time.
1 of 9
What are the rules for equilibrium?
Closed system; Can be approached from any direction; dynamic process; achieved when macroscopic properties are same
2 of 9
Which way does equilibrium move if products increase?
Equilibria moves to the right
3 of 9
Which way does equilibria move if reactants increase?
Equilibrium moves to the left
4 of 9
What is Le Chateliers principle?
If system at equilibrium is disturbed, the equilibrium moves in the direction that tends to reduce disturbance.
5 of 9
how does pressure effect equilibrium?
Equilibrium will move to the side with the least molecules
6 of 9
How does concentration effect equilibrium?
Equilibrium moves to the side that reduces concentration of reactants
7 of 9
How does temperature effect equilibrium?
Equilibrium moves to the endothermic side of the reaction to cool the system down
8 of 9
How does catalyst effect equilibrium?
no effect on position of equilibrium as it effect both sides equally, however the reaction gets to equilibrium faster.
