standard conditions

Do standard conditions have anything to do with equilibrium?

Re: standard conditions  [ENDORSED]

I believe standard conditions just represents things like 298K and 1atm. It doesn't necessarily mean the system is at equilibrium

Re: standard conditions

The equilibrium constant should be different depending on the conditions such as temperature and pressure, so it does have to do with it a little. In general, all of our calculations involving equilibrium will be at standard conditions unless stated otherwise.

Re: standard conditions

Most chemical experiments occur at STP, or Standard Temperature and Pressure, where the reaction occurs at 25 C (298 K) and 1 atm of atmospheric pressure. The reason for using STP is to allow other scientists to easily reproduce the conditions for the experiment.

Re: standard conditions

As others have said, standard conditions refers to the temp and pressure etc, that are accepted so that accepted values for E nott and many other values from tables are valid.
