Equilibrium Composition

Postby Nico Edgar 4L » Thu Jan 24, 2019 5:06 pm

What is the difference between calculating the equilibrium composition and finding the percent Ionization in an Acid Base Rxn?

Percent ionization is ionized concentration/original concentration. That is a step further than just finding equilibrium composition.

Percent ionization is equal to : concentration of weak acid ionized (H+ concentration) / initial concentration of the weak acid x 100%. For strong acids, ionization is around 100% but for weak acids, the percent ionization changes depending on the concentration. The more diluted an acid is, the greater the percent ionization.
