composition of the reaction mixture

Postby IreneSeo3F » Sun Jan 17, 2021 10:19 pm

Is the composition of the reaction mixture the concentration of the compounds at equilibrium?

not necessarily, the composition of a reaction mixture is the reaction quotient, Q, which gives the concentration values for an expression that may not necessarily be at equilibrium yet.

It depends on the temperature and how long the reaction has had to work towards equilibrium.
