Re: Le Chatelier's principle

It's useful for equilibrium, since it tells you that when there is a change to a system that is in equilibrium, the equilibrium will shift to compensate. Example, if the concentration of a substance decreases, the equilibrium will shift towards that substance so that it can make up for whatever was ...

Re: identifying acids & bases

To identify acids and bases, look at hydrogens!
If hydrogens have decreased, then it's an acid because it will donates hydrogen ions. On the other hand, when the number of hydrogens has increased, then you know that the substance is a base because it will accepts hydrogen ions.

Conjugates

I know this is a broad question, but why is it important to know about conjugates? What do they tell us about and why do we need to know about the conjugate seesaw?

Re: H20 in the ICE table

I think you only include gases when doing an ICE

Stability and K

Hello,

Can someone explain why having a smaller k value makes something more stable?

Re: K and Q

You can use Q at anytime, unlike K

K and Units

Hi! This is actually just a clarification question because I don't want to make a silly mistake.

I know there is an emphasis on units in this class (and chemistry as a whole), but K in particular doesn't have units, right?
