Factos effecting Equilibrium

Postby 605110118 » Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:52 am

What factors affect equilibrium? Is it just temperature and pressure?

Thee three we've covered in lecture are concentration, pressure due to change in volume, and temperature.

I believe that the only factor that affects the equilibrium constant is temperature. Other things can affect the value of Q, but the constant remains the same. I am not 100% sure though.

Temperature is the only thing that affects the equilibrium constant k. Factors such as concentrations of species, partial pressures of species, and volume of the container can all affect the reaction quotient, q, and drive the reaction in a certain direction in order to achieve equilibrium again.

The factors that affect equilibrium are concentration, pressure based on Volume, and temperature.

change in concentration, pressure (from volume), and temperature. temperature is the only one that affects the K value

Only the stoichiometric coefficients and temperature can change K. Concentrations do not effect K, because a change in concentration only mean that the reaction has to adjust to move back to equilibrium.
