The value of K for the given reaction under the given conditions is to be calculated. Concept Introduction: In a chemical equation when the number of atoms of an element on the left-hand side is equal to the number of atoms of that element on the right-hand side, it is known as a balanced chemical equation. The balancing of a chemical equation is done to follow the law of conservation of mass. The chemical equilibrium is the state in which the rates of both forward and backward reactions become equal. The concentration of both reactants and products do not change on reaching an equilibrium state. The general chemical equation is shown below. aA + bB ⇌ cC + dD The general equilibrium expression for a reaction is shown below. K = [ C ] c [ D ] d [ A ] a [ B ] b .

Solutions

Chapter 17, Problem 105AP
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The value of K for the given reaction under the given conditions is to be calculated.

Concept Introduction:

In a chemical equation when the number of atoms of an element on the left-hand side is equal to the number of atoms of that element on the right-hand side, it is known as a balanced chemical equation. The balancing of a chemical equation is done to follow the law of conservation of mass.

The chemical equilibrium is the state in which the rates of both forward and backward reactions become equal. The concentration of both reactants and products do not change on reaching an equilibrium state.

The general chemical equation is shown below.

aA+bBcC+dD

The general equilibrium expression for a reaction is shown below.

K=[C]c[D]d[A]a[B]b.
