Solids and Liquids in Le Chatelier

Postby Chloe Alviz 1E » Thu Jan 16, 2020 8:23 pm

Do solids and liquids apply to Le Chatelier's principle? For example, if we removed a solid reactant, would there be any effect on the equilibrium?

Thanks!

No since solids and liquids are not even used to calculate K they are disregarded in Le Chateliers. Solids and liquids do not affect the equilibrium.

No removing or adding a solid or liquid would not affect the equilibrium since they are not included in the equilibrium expression K.

no, solids or liquids (pure substances) would not affect le chatelier because they are not technically included in the equilibrium expression

Solids and liquids do not apply to Le Chatelier's principle as they do not affect the equilibrium constant.

They would not because we only take into account the gases. We take into account their molar concentrations.
