Calculating concentrations on ideal scenarios

Postby Tyler Angtuaco 1G » Fri Jan 17, 2020 7:53 am

In a chemical reaction involving two reactants and two products, is it possible to assume the equilibrium concentrations of all molecules in the reaction based solely on stoichiometric ratios if only the equilibrium concentration of one product is given and if you know there was a perfect amount of each reactant (no limiting reactants)?

Yes, I believe you can determine the equilibrium concentrations of all molecules present in a reaction at equilibrium given the concentration of one reactant or product at equilibrium and a balanced chemical equation. I doubt this situation is very common though.
