Problem 49P

For each equilibrium constant, indicate if you would expect an equilibrium reaction mixture to be dominated by reactants or by products, or to contain significant amounts of both.

(a) Keq = 5.2 × 1017

(b) Keq = 1.24

(c) Keq = 3.22 × 10−21

(d) Keq = 0.47

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 49P:

Here we are going to find out weather  equilibrium reaction mixture to be dominated by reactants or by products, or to contain significant amounts of both.

Step 1: The equilibrium constant, Keq, can be used to find the concentrations of each component of a reversible reaction at equilibrium.

  1. When Keq >> 1, the forward reaction is favored.The mixture contains higher concentration of products.
  2. When Keq << 1, the reverse reaction is favored.The mixture contains higher concentration of reactant.
  3. When Keq 1, Neither direction is favored; forward reaction proceeds about halfway.
