Product/Reactant Formation

Postby Janice Xiao 1I » Mon Nov 27, 2017 11:17 pm

13. When a chemical reaction has reached equilibrium are products and reactants being formed?

A. No because the concentrations of the reactants and products do not change.

B. No because the forward reaction and reverse reaction don’t occur.

C. Yes, the forward reaction and reverse reaction occur but they do so at different rates.

D. Yes, the forward reaction and reverse reaction occur but they do so at equal rates.

E. None of the above

The answer is D, because at equilibrium, the reactants are still forming products, and the products are still forming reactants. In other words, at equilibrium, the ratio [P]/[R] doesn't change, but the individual concentrations are still changing at equal rates. Hope that makes sense.
