True or False regarding reaction mixture

Postby Michelle Nwufo 2G » Sun Jan 13, 2019 2:22 pm

When the chemical equilibrium is reached, does the composition of the reaction mixture remain constant because the forward and reverse reactions are occurring at equal rates?

Yes! When the equilibrium is reached, the composition of the reaction mixture stays the same. Changes in the molarity and/or pressure occur before equilibrium is reached. However, at equilibrium, the composition stays the same precisely for the reason you mentioned. Hope this helps!

Yes that is true, both reactions are occurring at equal rates at equilibrium

Yeah the concentrations stay the same because the forward and reverse occur at the same rate.

yes that is basically the definition of equilibrium.

Yes, the composition of the reaction mixture remains constant when at equilibrium.
