Gas in Products

Postby Ju-Wei Wang 1I » Sat Feb 24, 2018 3:10 pm

Can we assume that if a gas forms in the products, it will always leave the solution, causing the reverse reaction to become less likely to occur?

Yes, I believe so. I don't think that a gas on the products side necessarily means ALL of it will leave the system, but generally speaking gas will not stay in liquid. So yes, the reverse reaction will be a lot less likely when there is a gas in the products.

Yes, in class he said that we can assume this but I believe he also said that we are assuming this for all reactions right now because we have not yet learned how to factor in the reverse reaction.
