## What happens to equilibrium when HCL is added?

If hydrochloric acid was added to the equilibrium mixture, both hydrogen ions (H +) and chloride ions (Cl -) are being added. Hydrogen ions are on the right hand side of the equilibrium, therefore the equilibrium will shift to the left hand side to compensate, resulting in a higher concentration of reactants.

## What is the effect of decreased HCL concentration on the equilibrium?

Alternately decreasing and increasing the hydrochloric acid concentration causes the equilibrium to shift in the direction predicted by Le Chatelier’s principle.

## What happens to the reaction when more H2 G is added?

Examples: – The stress of adding H2(g) shifts the reaction to the right, producing NH3(g). Therefore, more H2(g) reacts, reducing the H2(g) concentration. – More collisions between H, and N, produce NHz, so more H, is used up.

## What will happen if you remove a reactant from an equilibrium system?

Chemical equilibria can be shifted by changing the conditions that the system experiences. When additional product is added, the equilibrium shifts to reactants to reduce the stress. If reactant or product is removed, the equilibrium shifts to make more reactant or product, respectively, to make up for the loss.

## What is the relationship between Q and KC?

Q can be used to determine which direction a reaction will shift to reach equilibrium. If K > Q, a reaction will proceed forward, converting reactants into products. If K < Q, the reaction will proceed in the reverse direction, converting products into reactants. If Q = K then the system is already at equilibrium.

## What does KP depend on?

And the value of equilibrium constants depend only upon temperature and the pressure only effect the equilibrium conditions and not the value of Kp because partial are so adjusted to provide the same value of Kp at the same temperature.

## What is the KP equation?

For the equation Kp = Kc(RT)^(delta N), shouldn’t there be two instances in which Kp = Kc? First, when delta N = 0 (mols of product gas = mols of reactant gas); second when temperature T is the exact reciprocal of constant R or when R*T = 1 (if R = 0.08206 L*atm*mol^(-1)*K^(-1), T = 1/0.08206 K)?

## What does KP tell?

Kp is the equilibrium constant calculated from the partial pressures of a reaction equation. It is used to express the relationship between product pressures and reactant pressures. It is a unitless number, although it relates the pressures.

## What is delta N in KP?

So you have Kp equals Kc times RT to the delta n. Kp is the equilibrium constant and pressures. So the atmosphere or the pressure. Temperature, just like in all gas laws, needs to be in Kelvin and delta n stands for change in moles of gas. So remember, it’s gas only, and so products minus reactants.

## What units is KP?

Re: Units of Kp The units for Kp are typically bar or atm.

## Does KP have to be ATM?

of Kp. Since each term p(X)/p0(X) is a ratio of two pressures, it is a number. The logarithm function operates on numbers only; it does not operate on physical quantities. Therefore Kp must be a number, not some value with units such as atm – 1 .

## Why Does KP have no units?

As a general practice, we do not write the units of Kc and Kp. This is because, in thermodynamics, we define the constants in terms of “activities” rather than the concentrations or partial pressures of components.

## Does a constant have a unit?

Fundamental Constants. Fundamental constants are some numbers with units that cannot (yet) be calculated from some physical theory, but must be measured. Some fundamental constants will then be calculated and then are no longer fundamental.

## What will be the value of Delta G if equilibrium constant for a reaction is 10?
