11.1 part a.

Postby Mariane Sanchez 1E » Sat Nov 25, 2017 11:50 pm

Hey all,

Just a bit confused and can't really wrap my head around the idea that in equilibrium, the reaction will still happen and the concentrations of the products and reactants will be constant? How does that happen?

When a reaction is in equilibrium, the reaction still happens. The idea is that rate of formation (from reactants to products) and the rate of decomposition (from products to reactants) are happening at the same rate so the concentration remains constant. It's as if you're assembling a toy from a part as fast as someone disassembling your toy into the parts you use. That's how concentration remains constant.
