# Given the reaction A ( g ) + B ( g ) ⇌ C ( g ) + D ( g ) , consider the following situations:i. You have 1.3 M A and 0.8 M B initially.ii. You have 1.3 M A, 0.8 M B. and 0.2 M C initially.iii. You have 2.0 M A and 0.8 M B initially.Order the preceding situations in terms. of increasing equilibrium concentration of D. Explain your order. Then give the order in terms of increasing equilibrium concentration of B and explain.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The stated situations corresponding to the given general reaction are to be considered. The situations are to be arranged in terms of increasing equilibrium concentration of D and the order is to be explained. The order of increasing equilibrium concentration of B is to be stated and explained.

Concept introduction: Chemical equilibrium is a state of a system in which the rate of forward and backward reactions are equal. It is affected by various factors such as concentration of reactants or products, temperature, pressure etc.

To determine: The order increasing equilibrium concentration of D and B and its explanation.

Explanation

Explanation

The given reaction is,

A(g)+B(g)C(g)+D(g)

The situation (i) is 1.3MA and 0.8MB initially.

The situation (ii) is 1.3MA , 0.8MB and 0.2MC initially.

The situation (iii) is 2.0MA , 0
