Equilibrium Dynamic

Postby Jalaia Jackson 2G » Sun Jan 10, 2021 6:20 pm

Is there anything else besides temperature that can make an equilibrium dynamic?

Le Chatelier's Principle describes what changes dynamic equilibrium. Beyond temperature, pressure and concentration also affect the state of equilibrium! Here's a helpful link that describes this: https://chem.libretexts.org/Bookshelves/Physical_and_Theoretical_Chemistry_Textbook_Maps/Supplemental_Modules_(Physical_and_Theoretical_Chemistry)/Equilibria/Le_Chateliers_Principle

can yall tell chem libretexts is my buddy

Temperature is not the only thing that needs to change. There can be a change of pressure, the concentration of products or reactants, or volume which can affect the equilibrium dynamic.

According to Le Chatelier's Principle the dynamic equilibrium could also be disturbed by conditions such as change in pressure or concentration of products or reactants. However, the equilibrium will automatically shift oppositely to the change that took place, to eliminate the change and initiate dynamic equilibrium.

Temperature is the only factor that affects the K value (equilibrium constant), but equilibriums are dynamic because reactants are constantly going to products and products constantly are going to reactants. These changes occur at the same rate at equilibrium, so we see no net change; however, there are reactions still going on-- that's what makes it dynamic. When we change product or reactant concentration/volume/pressure, we can force a system to go to a new equilibrium, but the K value stays the same. Hope this helps!
