Homo/Heterogenous Equilibria

Postby TiffanyDinh1C » Sat Nov 07, 2015 8:53 pm

How do we differentiate between Homogenous Equilibrium and Heterogenous Equilibrium and how are they related to finding the Equilibrium Constant?

Homogeneous equilibria is when the reactants and products are in the same phase. Heterogeneous equilibria is when the reactants and products are in different phases. For example if reactants are gasses and products are gasses that is considered homogeneous. If the reactants were in the aqueous phase and the products are in the gas phase, then it is considered heterogeneous.

In an equilibrium constant, which substances are not considered?
