Chapter 4 The Basic Approach to Chemical Equilibrium Text Notes I The Chemical Composition of Aqueous Solutions A Water is the most plentiful solvent on Earth and serves as the major medium for chemical analyses 03 Electrolytes 7 solutes that form ions when dissolved in water producing a solution with electrical conductivity Strong electrolytes ionized completely in water while weak electrolytes only partially ionize so a strong electrolyte solution will be a better conductor or electricity Strong electrolytes consist of acids bases and salts 0 Acids and Bases 1 BronsteadLowry Theory 7 acids donate protonsbases accept protons For a species to act as an acid a base proton acceptor must be present and vice versa The species produced when an acid gives up a proton is called the conjugate base of the parent acid Acid1 9 basel proton When a base accepts a proton a conjugate acid is produced Base proton 9 acid If the 2 processes are combined a neutralization reaction occurs Acidl base 9 basel acidz NH3 H20 9 NH4 OH39 Problem 44 Acid Conjugate Base a HOCl OCl b H20 OH c NH4 NH3 1 HCO3 CO3239 e H2PO4 HPO4239 D Amphiprotic Solvents 7 a solvent that can act as either an acid or base depending on the solute it s in methanol ethanol anhydrous acetic acid and dihydrogen phosphate ion are all examples of amphiprotic solvents H2P0439 H30 a H3PO4 H20 H2P0439 OH39 9 HPO4239 H20 zwitterions 7 an amphiprotic compound that is produced by a simple amino acid s weak acid and weak base functional groups zwitterions carry both a positive charge amino group and negative charge carboxyl group 1 Amphiprotic solvents can undergo spontaneous selfionization or autoprotolysis to form 2 different ionic species H20 H20 9 H30 OH39 Both the hydronium ion and hydroxyl ion will have concentrations of about 10397 M Problem 46 Expressions 0fAutopr0tolysis a 2H20 gt H30 0H b 2CH3COOH 9 CH3COOH2 CH3COO c 2CH3NH2 9 CH3NH3 CH3NH d 2CH3OH 9 CH3OH2 CH3O E Strong and Weak Acids and Bases 1 Strong acids dissociate completely in water weak acids partially dissociate yielding both parent acid and conjugate base 2 Acids and bases can be anionic cationic or neutral perchloric and hydrochloric acids are strong and will completely dissociate in water leaving a conjugate bases and spectator ion ammonium ion and acetic acid are weak acids and have a higher affinity for protons acetic acid can act as a differentiating solvent in which various acids dissociate to different degrees and thus have different strengths while water acts as a leveling solvent for strong acids because the strong acid will dissociate completely and have no differences in strength F Chemical Equilibrium There is never actually a complete conversion of reactants to product in a chemical reaction there is only a chemical equilibrium A chemical equilibrium state is when the ratio of concentration of reactants and products is constant 2 An equilibriumconstant expression is an algebraic equation that describes the concentration relationships that exist among reactants and products at equilibrium H3As04 3139 2H a H3As03 15 H20 This equilibrium reaction can be monitored as it moves to the right by the orange to red color change of the triiodide ion Once the color becomes constant the reactants have been used up and the triiodide ion concentration is now constant G Writing Equilibrium Constants l The concentration in uence on the position of a chemical equilibrium is quantitatively described by the equilibrium expression 2 This is a useful expression because it allows the chemist to predict the direction and completeness of a chemical reaction but the expression yields no information about the rate at which equilibrium is approached The equilibrium expression for the generalized equation WW xX 9 yY zZ would be K my ZZWW X15 Problem 4 7 a CZHSNHZ H20 9 CZHSNH3 0H Kb KwKa 100210391 231x103911 jg f OHq 433210394 CszNHzl b HCN H20 9 H30 CN Ka gi CNq 62103910 HCN c

analytical chemistry ionproduct constant KW solubility product Ksp dissociation constant Ka or Kb formation constant Bu oxidationreduction constant Kredox and the distribution constant Kd Water does not appear in equilibrium constant expressions 1 The IonProduct Constant for Water aqueous solutions contain small concentrations of hydronium and hydroxide ions as a result of 2H20 9 H30 OH and the equilibrium constant can be calculated form K H30 OHH202 the concentration of water in dilute solutions is very large compared with the concentration of hydrogen and hydroxide ions so the concentration of water can be rewritten as the ion product constant for water KH202 KW H30 OH Because OH and H30 are formed only from the dissociation of water their concentrations must be equal 1 Solubility Products Ksp The Ksp is a numerical constant that describes equilibrium in a saturated solution of a sparingly soluble ionic salt Solubility S so some solid must be present in the reaction

reduction in solubility of an ionic precipitate when a soluble compound combining one of the ions of the precipitate is added to the solution in equilibrium with the precipitate 2 The common ion effect is a mass action effect predicted from the Le Chatelier principle 3 The Le Chatelier principle states that the position of equilibrium in a system always shifts in a direction that tends to relieve an applied stress to the system J Writing Dissociation Constants for Acids and Bases Ka is the acid dissociation constant HNO2 H20 9 H30 NOz39 Ka mmzl HNOZ Kb is the base dissociation constant NH3 H20 9 NH4 OH39 Kb NHJHOH39D NH3 Water is not necessary in the denominator of either equation because the concentration of water is so large compared to the concentration of the weak acid or base that the dissociation does not change water appreciably Kw H30OH39 KaKb Kw KaKb K Calculating the H30 in Solutions of Weak Acids When a weak acid HA is dissolved in water 2 equilibria are established that give hydronium ions HA H20 9 H30 A Ka H30 A HA 2H20 a H3O OH Kw H30OH The hydronium produced in the rst reaction suppress the dissociation of water so that the contribution of hydronium ions from the second equation are negligible so A H30 The sum of the molar concentrations of the weak acid and its conjugate base must equal the analytical concentration of the acid CH A because the solution has no other source of A ions so cHA A HA or cHA H30 HA rearrange and get HA cHA 7 H30 the Ka expression would then be Ka 1319 CHA 7 H30 This can be further simpli ed to H30 VKaCHA Problem 419 H30 of

lt gt Ce Fe3 Ce is the oxidizing agent or oxidant because it accepts electrons from iron and Fe is the reductant because it donated electrons to Ce A redox reaction can be split into 2 half reactions e lt gt Ce Fez lt gt Fey e The 2 half reactions must be balanced just like any other reaction The number of atoms of each element and the net charge on each side of the equation must be in balance so for the oxidation of Fe2 by MnO4 the half reactions would be MnO4 8H 5e H Mn 4H20 5Fe2 H 5Fe3 5e The net charge for the first half reaction is l 7 5 8 2 which is the same on the right side For the second half reaction it must by multiplied by 5 so that the number of electrons lost by Fe equals the number gained by MnO4 The balanced net equation for the reaction would be MnO4 5Fe2 8H H Mn 5Fe3

reactanm do not come in contact with one another salt bridge employed a salt bridge prevents the mixing of the contents of the 2 electrolyte solutions making up electrochemical cells N Problem 164 The significance between the 2 standard E potentials is that the first standard potential is for a solution that is saturated with 11 which has an 12aq activity much less than 1 The second potential is for a hypothetical half cell in which the Izaq is unity so it would have a greater potential since the driving force for the reduction would be greater at the higher 11 concentration Ill 03 Electrochemical Cell an array consisting of 2 or 3 electrodes each of which is in contact with an electrolyte solution Typically the electrolytes are in electrical contact through a salt bridge An external metal conductor connects the electrodes 1 A cathode is an electrode where reduction occurs 2 An anode is the electrode where oxidation occurs Electrochemical Cells are either galvanic or electrolytic l galvanic cells store and supply electrical energy ex Batteries 2 electrolytic cells require an external source of electrical energy for operation Reversible versus Irreversible Cells 1 in a reversible cell reversing the current reverses the cell reaction 2 in an irreversible cell reversing the current causes a different half reaction o occur at one or both of the electrodes Problem 166 The potential in the presence of base would be more negative because the nickel ion activity in the basic solution would be much less than 1 molar So the driving force for the reduction would be less and the electrode potential would be much more negative In a cell electricity is carried by movement of anions toward the anode and cations toward the catho e Electrode Potentials A the potential difference that develops between the electrodes of the cell is a measure of the tendency for the reaction to proceed from anonequilibriurn state to the condition of equilibrium Gibb s Free Energy AG nFE can If the reactants and products are in their standard states the resulting cell potential is called the standard cell potential and is related to Gibb s Free Energy Equation AG nFE RT ln Keq Cell half potentials are found by Ecell Eright Elel t Defining Electrode Potentials and Standard Electrode Potentials A An electrode potential is the potential of a cell consisting of the electrode in question acting as the right hand electrode and the standard hydrogen electrode acting as the left hand electrode B The standard electrode potential of a half reaction is defined as its electrode potential when the activities of the reactanm and producm are all unity V The Nerst Equation E E 00592n log g m a b A B The Nerst Equation relates the potential to the concentrations activity of the participanm in an electrochemical halfcell A formal potential is the electrode potential when the ratio of analytical concentrations of reactants and products of a half reaction are exactly 100 and
