Chemical Equilibrium

Postby Genisis Cabral » Sun Nov 26, 2017 12:23 pm

When finding the chemical equilibrium, solids and liquids are not included within the K expressions? To clarify, are they not included because their molar concentration experiences no change?

Yes. Their concentrations do not change, and adding them to the equation would be the equivalent of dividing and multiplying the equation by 1.

Also, solvents are not included when finding the equilibrium constant as their change in concentration would be extremely insignificant due to their excess.
