Calculating Equilibrium Composition

Postby Michelle Pham_3H » Wed Nov 22, 2017 6:03 pm

Today in lecture we discussed how one would calculate equilibrium concentrations using x in the ICE box when the change in concentration is unknown. The example given had one negative and one positive value, and professor also addressed that one value would be too large if both were positive. When calculating for composition of an equilibrium mixture, is it possible to receive two negative values? Thanks in advance!

I think that at this point we won't be given two negative numbers so I would just focus on the other possibilities.

In my second lecture I addressed this today stating that two negative values would not occur in a real world chemistry example.
