Le Chatelier's Principle

Postby jane_ni_2d » Mon Jan 28, 2019 1:23 pm

does le chatelier's principle apply to all chemical reactions or only those at equilibrium?

Le chateliers principle applies on to reactions at equilibrium as it determines how a change in the system at equilibrium will affect the direction of the reaction.

We just need to know how changing temperature, pressure (and thus volume), and concentration would affect the reaction at equilibrium, i.e. how it shifts equilibrium position or the equilibrium constant (if applicable).

Yes, Le Chatelier's Principle's definition is as follows: to counteract a change in condition, a system in equilibrium will shift as to minimize the change's effect.

If a system was not at equilibrium, you could think of it like in the middle of a change, and then system will shift to be in a state of equilibrium again.
