Re: Memorizing relationship of Q and K

I agree with Leanne. For the purposes of finding out which way the reaction is favored, think of Q as the number of products relative to the final equilibrium. If Q (products) is less than K, more products are needed.

Re: Sapling #2

You can use the value that they give you for the equilibrium value of O2. If 0.19 moles of O2 is present at equilibrium, then twice as many moles of 2SO2 is present due to the values of the coefficients. Similarly, there must be the same amount of moles of 2SO2 and 2SO3. Therefore, at equilibrium, t...

Re: Finding negative pole of a molecule

I agree with Shanna. There is probably another way to figure it out, but I always look at electronegativity, being how much an atom pulls on electrons. The atom with the higher electronegativity will most likely be the part of the molecule with the negative charge.
