Chapter 11.29 HW

Postby Jineava_To_3N » Fri Nov 11, 2016 3:23 pm

If Q =1.0 for the reaction N2(g)+O2(g)->2 NO(g) at 25 C, will the reaction have a tendency to form products or reactants, or will it be at equilibrium?
In the solution manual, K is calculated by referring to Appendix 2A, but it that the only way to solve this problem?

When you are saying Q do you mean Kq? the equilibrium constant. I am going to base my explanation on that fact. If Kq = 1 then the reaction would be at equilibrium and would favor neither products or reactants. The reason being in the calculation of the equilibrium constant ( products/reactants) a value of one would mean ratio of products to reactants are the same.
