How do I Calculate the Equilibrium Constant?

Answer It was French chemist Henry Louis Le Châtelier who established the idea that a system at equilibrium will respond to change in a predictable way. The equilibrium constant is derived from experimen... Read More »

Top Q&A For: How do I Calculate the Equilibrium Constant

Does taking water out of an equilibrium reaction change the equilibrium constant?

No, the equilibrium constant is independent of concentration as long as the ratio of products and reactants remains as is. It can be effected by anything that would influence the ratio of products... Read More »

What factors can change the value of the equilibrium constant?

How does the form of the reaction qoutient Q compare with that of the equilibrium constant Keq?

What do you need to know In order to write the equilibrium constant expression for a reaction?

To write the Keq for a reaction, the equilibrium concentrations of all reactants and products must be known. A specific example of this is how we define pH: the log of the equilibrium constant for ... Read More »
