Solids and Equilibrium

Postby Vincent Leong 2B » Thu Jan 16, 2020 7:48 pm

Do solids and liquids affect equilibrium and but not the equilibrium constant or does it have no impact on both? Why?

Solids and liquids do not affect equilibrium or the equilibrium constant because they are pure substances that don't change in a reaction.

They don't affect either because they are pure and don't change in reactions.

Solids and liquids do not affect because their concentrations do not change.

Solids and liquids do not affect equilibrium or the equilibrium constant. Solids do not have concentration, which is why they do not affect equilibrium. Liquids are usually solvents and have insignificant changes in concentration, so they do not affect equilibrium either.

neither affects equilibrium because they are both pure substances

Solids and liquids do not affect equilibrium or the equilibrium constant because solids do not have concentrations and and pure liquids usually act as a solvent in large excess so its concentration is relatively unchanged.

They are pure substances; solids do not change concentration and in lecture I believe Dr. Lavelle said that the liquids act as solvent so the concentration is not really changed.

Neither of them affect the equilibrium or equilibrium constant because they're pure substances. Solids don't have a concentration, and liquids act as solvents and their concentrations don't change.

Since both solids and liquids are pure substances, they do not change either.
