Equilibrium Concentrations

Postby Lauren Hekman 1A » Wed Nov 18, 2015 10:08 pm

This was a question from the online assessment..

If the concentration of a reactant and product do not change with time, will their ratio change with time?

Because their ratios are dependent on their moles, and their moles are used in the concentration. If the concentration is not changing then the ratio should not change also.

If the concentrations remain constant, so will the ratio.
If the rate of the forward reaction is equal to the reverse reaction, then the chemicals are in chemical equilibrium. K signifies a ratio that does not change.
