Textbook Problem

Write the equilibrium constant expression for each of the following reactions in terms of concentrations.

  1. (a) CO2(g) + C(s) ⇄ 2 CO(g)
  2. (b) [Cu(NH3)4)2+(aq) ⇄ Cu2+(aq) + 4 NH3(aq)
  3. (c) CH3CO2H(aq) + H2O() ⇄ CH3CO2(aq) + H3O+(aq)

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The equilibrium constant expression for the reaction has to be written.

Concept Introduction: At equilibrium the concentration of the reaction and the product is equated to a constant K, where K is known as the equilibrium

If a reaction is as aA+bBcC+dD ,

The equilibrium constant K=[C]c[D]d[A]a[B]b

Explanation

The product concentrations appear in the numerator and reactant concentrations appear in the denominator...

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The equilibrium constant expression for the reaction has to be written.

Concept Introduction: At equilibrium the concentration of the reaction and the product is equated to a constant K, where K is known as the equilibrium

If a reaction is as aA+bBcC+dD ,

The equilibrium constant K=[C]c[D]d[A]a[B]b

(c)
