RXN constant P

Postby Nahelly Alfaro-2C » Sun Feb 03, 2019 11:02 pm

When is the rxn constant P significant and insignificant? Why is knowing its significance important?

I'm assuming you mean constant pressure. If something is under constant pressure that means the change in pressure is equal to 0 which means you can basically ignore it in the equation.

Knowing when the reaction is occurring under constant pressure can help you solve problems involving work. It can help you determine which equation to use (either w=-PdetlaV or w=-nRTln(Vf/Vi)).
Also at constant pressure we can determine that qp=deltaH.
