Changing the Temperature

Postby Jennifer1E » Tue Aug 01, 2017 2:39 pm

Does changing the temperature affect the K/equilibrium ratio? If so, how?

Yes it does. See my lecture notes.
For example: An endothermic reaction, when heated, favors more products and therefore K increases.

When an endothermic reaction is heated, product formation is favored.
When an endothermic reaction is cooled, reactant formation is favored.
When an exothermic reaction is cooled, product formation is favored.
When an exothermic reaction is heated, reactant formation is favored.
