1 Sample Exercise 15.1 Writing Equilibrium-Constant Expressions Write the equilibrium expression for K c for the following reactions: Solution Analyze: We are given three equations and are asked to write an equilibrium-constant expression for each. Plan: Using the law of mass action, we write each expression as a quotient having the product concentration terms in the numerator and the reactant concentration terms in the denominator. Each concentration term is raised to the power of its coefficient in the balanced chemical equation. Practice Exercise

2 Sample Exercise 15.2 Converting between K c and K p In the synthesis of ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen, K c = 9.60 at 300 C. Calculate K p for this reaction at this temperature. Solution Analyze: We are given K c for a reaction and asked to calculate K p. Plan: The relationship between K c and K p is given by Equation To apply that equation, we must determine Δn by comparing the number of moles of product with the number of moles of reactants (Equation 15.15). Solve: There are two moles of gaseous products (2 NH 3 ) and four moles of gaseous reactants (1 N H 2 ). Therefore, Δn = 2 4 = 2. (Remember that Δ functions are always based on products minus reactants.) The temperature, T, is = 573 K. The value for the ideal-gas constant, R, is L-atm/mol-K. Using K c = 9.60, we therefore have Practice Exercise

3 Sample Exercise 15.3 Interpreting the Magnitude of an Equilibrium Constant The following diagrams represent three different systems at equilibrium, all in the same size containers. (a) Without doing any calculations, rank the three systems in order of increasing equilibrium constant, K c. (b) If the volume of the containers is 1.0 L and each sphere represents 0.10 mol, calculate K c for each system. Solution Analyze: We are first asked to judge the relative magnitudes of three equilibrium constants and then to calculate them. Plan: (a) The more product that is present at equilibrium, relative to the reactant, the greater the equilibrium constant. (b) The equilibrium constant is given by the concentrations of products over reactants.

4 Sample Exercise 15.3 Interpreting the Magnitude of an Equilibrium Constant Solution (continued) Solve: (a) Each box contains 10 spheres. The amount of product in each varies as follows: (i) 6, (ii) 1, (iii) 8. Thus, the equilibrium constant varies in the order (ii) < (i) < (iii). (b) In (i) we have 0.60 mol/l product and 0.40 mol/l reactant, giving K c = 0.60/0.40 = 1.5. (You will get the same result by merely dividing the number of spheres of each kind: 6 spheres/4 spheres = 1.5.) In (ii) we have 0.10 mol/l product and 0.90 mol/l reactant, giving K c = 0.10/0.90 = 0.11 (or 1 sphere/9 spheres = 0.11). In (ii) we have 0.80 mol/l product and 0.29 mol/l reactant, giving K c = 0.80/0.20 = 4.0 (or 8 spheres/2 spheres = 4.0). These calculations verify the order in (a). Comment: Imagine that there was a drawing, like those above, that represents a reaction with a very small or very large value of K c. For example, what would the drawing look like if K c = ? In that case there would need to be 100,000 reactant molecules for only 1 product molecule. But then, that would be impractical to draw. Practice Exercise

5 Sample Exercise 15.4 Evaluating an Equilibrium Constant When an Equation is Reversed The equilibrium constant for the reaction of N 2 with O 2 to form NO equals K c = at 25 C: Using this information, write the equilibrium constant expression and calculate the equilibrium constant for the following reaction: Solution Analyze: We are asked to write the equilibrium-constant expression for a reaction and to determine the value of K c given the chemical equation and equilibrium constant for the reverse reaction. Plan: The equilibrium-constant expression is a quotient of products over reactants, each raised to a power equal to its coefficient in the balanced equation. The value of the equilibrium constant is the reciprocal of that for the reverse reaction. Solve: Writing products over reactants, we have Both the equilibrium-constant expression and the numerical value of the equilibrium constant are the reciprocals of those for the formation of NO from N 2 and O 2 : Comment: Regardless of the way we express the equilibrium among NO, N 2, and O 2, at 25 C it lies on the side that favors N 2 and O 2. Thus, the equilibrium mixture will contain mostly N 2 and O 2, with very little NO present.

7 Sample Exercise 15.5 Combining Equilibrium Expressions Given the following information, determine the value of K c for the reaction Solution Analyze: We are given two equilibrium equations and the corresponding equilibrium constants and are asked to determine the equilibrium constant for a third equation, which is related to the first two. Plan: We cannot simply add the first two equations to get the third. Instead, we need to determine how to manipulate the equations to come up with the steps that will add to give us the desired equation. Solve: If we multiply the first equation by 2 and make the corresponding change to its equilibrium constant (raising to the power 2), we get

8 Sample Exercise 15.5 Combining Equilibrium Expressions Solution (continued) Reversing the second equation and again making the corresponding change to its equilibrium constant (taking the reciprocal) gives Now we have two equations that sum to give the net equation, and we can multiply the individual K c values to get the desired equilibrium constant. Practice Exercise

9 Sample Exercise 15.6 Writing Equilibrium-Constant Expressions for Heterogeneous Reactions Write the equilibrium-constant expression for K c for each of the following reactions: Solution Analyze: We are given two chemical equations, both for heterogeneous equilibria, and asked to write the corresponding equilibrium-constant expressions. Plan: We use the law of mass action, remembering to omit any pure solids, pure liquids, and solvents from the expressions. Solve: (a) The equilibrium-constant expression is Because H 2 O appears in the reaction as a pure liquid, its concentration does not appear in the equilibriumconstant expression. (b) The equilibrium-constant expression is Because SnO 2 and Sn are both pure solids, their concentrations do not appear in the equilibrium-constant expression.

11 Sample Exercise 15.7 Analyzing a Heterogeneous Equilibrium Solution Analyze: We are asked which of several combinations of species can establish an equilibrium between calcium carbonate and its decomposition products, calcium oxide and carbon dioxide. Plan: For equilibrium to be achieved, it must be possible for both the forward process and the reverse process to occur. For the forward process to occur, there must be some calcium carbonate present. For the reverse process to occur, there must be both calcium oxide and carbon dioxide. In both cases, either the necessary compounds may be present initially, or they may be formed by reaction of the other species. Solve: Equilibrium can be reached in all cases except (c) as long as sufficient quantities of solids are present. (a) CaCO 3 simply decomposes, forming CaO(s) and CO 2 (g) until the equilibrium pressure of CO 2 is attained. There must be enough CaCO 3, however, to allow the CO 2 pressure to reach equilibrium. (b) CO 2 continues to combine with CaO until the partial pressure of the CO 2 decreases to the equilibrium value. (c) There is no CaO present, so equilibrium cannot be attained because there is no way the CO 2 pressure can decrease to its equilibrium value (which would require some of the CO 2 to react with CaO). (d) The situation is essentially the same as in (a): CaCO 3 decomposes until equilibrium is attained. The presence of CaO initially makes no difference.

13 Sample Exercise 15.8 Calculating K When All Equilibrium Concentrations Are Known A mixture of hydrogen and nitrogen in a reaction vessel is allowed to attain equilibrium at 472 C. The equilibrium mixture of gases was analyzed and found to contain 7.38 atm H 2, 2.46 atm N 2, and atm NH 3. From these data, calculate the equilibrium constant K p for the reaction Solution Analyze: We are given a balanced equation and equilibrium partial pressures and are asked to calculate the value of the equilibrium constant. Plan: Using the balanced equation, we write the equilibrium-constant expression. We then substitute the equilibrium partial pressures into the expression and solve for K p. Solve: Practice Exercise An aqueous solution of acetic acid is found to have the following equilibrium concentrations at 25 C: [HC 2 H 3 O 2 ] = M; [H + ] = M; and [C 2 H 3 O 2 ] = M. Calculate the equilibrium constant K c for the ionization of acetic acid at 25 C. The reaction is Answer:

14 Sample Exercise 15.9 Calculating K from Initial and Equilibrium Concentrations A closed system initially containing M H 2 and M I 2 at 448 C is allowed to reach equilibrium. Analysis of the equilibrium mixture shows that the concentration of HI is M. Calculate K c at 448 C for the reaction taking place, which is Solution Analyze: We are given the initial concentrations of H 2 and l 2 and the equilibrium concentration of HI. We are asked to calculate the equilibrium constant K c for Plan: We construct a table to find equilibrium concentrations of all species and then use the equilibrium concentrations to calculate the equilibrium constant. Solve: First, we tabulate the initial and equilibrium concentrations of as many species as we can. We also provide space in our table for listing the changes in concentrations. As shown, it is convenient to use the chemical equation as the heading for the table. Second, we calculate the change in concentration of HI, which is the difference between the equilibrium values and the initial values:

15 Sample Exercise 15.9 Calculating K from Initial and Equilibrium Concentrations Solution (continued) Third, we use the coefficients in the balanced equation to relate the change in [HI] to the changes in [H 2 ] and [I 2 ]: Fourth, we calculate the equilibrium concentrations of H 2 and I 2, using the initial concentrations and the changes. The equilibrium concentration equals the initial concentration minus that consumed: The completed table now looks like this (with equilibrium concentrations in blue for emphasis): Notice that the entries for the changes are negative when a reactant is consumed and positive when a product is formed.

16 Sample Exercise 15.9 Calculating K from Initial and Equilibrium Concentrations Solution (continued) Finally, now that we know the equilibrium concentration of each reactant and product, we can use the equilibrium-constant expression to calculate the equilibrium constant. Comment: The same method can be applied to gaseous equilibrium problems to calculate K p, in which case partial pressures are used as table entries in place of molar concentrations. Practice Exercise Sulfur trioxide decomposes at high temperature in a sealed container: Initially, the vessel is charged at 1000 K with SO 3 (g) at a partial pressure of atm. At equilibrium the SO 3 partial pressure is atm. Calculate the value of K p at 1000 K. Answer: 0.338

17 Sample Exercise Predicting the Direction of Approach to Equilibrium At 448 C the equilibrium constant K c for the reaction is Predict in which direction the reaction will proceed to reach equilibrium at 448 C if we start with mol of HI, mol of H 2, and mol of I 2 in a 2.00-L container. Solution Analyze: We are given a volume and initial molar amounts of the species in a reaction and asked to determine in which direction the reaction must proceed to achieve equilibrium. Plan: We can determine the starting concentration of each species in the reaction mixture. We can then substitute the starting concentrations into the equilibrium-constant expression to calculate the reaction quotient, Q c. Comparing the magnitudes of the equilibrium constant, which is given, and the reaction quotient will tell us in which direction the reaction will proceed. Solve: The initial concentrations are The reaction quotient is therefore Because Q c < K c, the concentration of HI must increase and the concentrations of H 2 and I 2 must decrease to reach equilibrium; the reaction will proceed from left to right as it moves toward equilibrium.

19 Sample Exercise Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations Solution Analyze: We are given an equilibrium constant, K p, and the equilibrium partial pressures of two of the three substances in the equation (N 2 and H 2 ), and we are asked to calculate the equilibrium partial pressure for the third substance (NH 3 ). Plan: We can set K p equal to the equilibrium-constant expression and substitute in the partial pressures that we know. Then we can solve for the only unknown in the equation. Solve: We tabulate the equilibrium pressures as follows: Because we do not know the equilibrium pressure of NH 3, we represent it with a variable, x. At equilibrium the pressures must satisfy the equilibrium-constant expression: We now rearrange the equation to solve for x: Comment: We can always check our answer by using it to recalculate the value of the equilibrium constant:

20 Sample Exercise Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations Practice Exercise At 500 K the reaction has K p = In an equilibrium mixture at 500 K, the partial pressure of PCl 5 is atm and that of PCl 3 is atm. What is the partial pressure of Cl 2 in the equilibrium mixture? Answer: 1.22 atm

21 Sample Exercise Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations from Initial Concentrations A L flask is filled with mol of H 2 and mol of I 2 at 448 C. The value of the equilibrium constant K c for the reaction at 448 C is What are the equilibrium concentrations of H 2, I 2, and HI in moles per liter? Solution Analyze: We are given the volume of a container, an equilibrium constant, and starting amounts of reactants in the container and are asked to calculate the equilibrium concentrations of all species. Plan: In this case we are not given any of the equilibrium concentrations. We must develop some relationships that relate the initial concentrations to those at equilibrium. The procedure is similar in many regards to that outlined in Sample Exercise 15.9, where we calculated an equilibrium constant using initial concentrations. Solve: First, we note the initial concentrations of H 2 and I 2 in the L flask: Second, we construct a table in which we tabulate the initial concentrations:

22 Sample Exercise Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations from Initial Concentrations Solution (continued) Third, we use the stoichiometry of the reaction to determine the changes in concentration that occur as the reaction proceeds to equilibrium. The concentrations of H 2 and I 2 will decrease as equilibrium is established and that of HI will increase. Let s represent the change in concentration of H 2 by the variable x. The balanced chemical equation tells us the relationship between the changes in the concentrations of the three gases: Fourth, we use the initial concentrations and the changes in concentrations, as dictated by stoichiometry, to express the equilibrium concentrations. With all our entries, our table now looks like this:

23 Sample Exercise Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations from Initial Concentrations Solution (continued) Fifth, we substitute the equilibrium concentrations into the equilibriumconstant expression and solve for the unknown, x: If you have an equation-solving calculator, you can solve this equation directly for x. If not, expand this expression to obtain a quadratic equation in x: Solving the quadratic equation (Appendix A.3) leads to two solutions for x: When we substitute x = into the expressions for the equilibrium concentrations, we find negative concentrations of H 2 and I 2. Because a negative concentration is not chemically meaningful, we reject this solution. We then use x = to find the equilibrium concentrations:

24 Sample Exercise Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations from Initial Concentrations Solution (continued) Check: We can check our solution by putting these numbers into the equilibrium-constant expression to assure that we correctly calculate the equilibrium constant: Comment: Whenever you use a quadratic equation to solve an equilibrium problem, one of the solutions will not be chemically meaningful and should be rejected. Practice Exercise

25 Sample Exercise Using Le Châtelier s Principal to Predict shifts in Equilibrium Consider the equilibrium In which direction will the equilibrium shift when (a) N 2 O 4 is added, (b) NO 2 is removed, (c) the total pressure is increased by addition of N 2 (g), (d) the volume is increased, (e) the temperature is decreased? Solution Analyze: We are given a series of changes to be made to a system at equilibrium and are asked to predict what effect each change will have on the position of the equilibrium. Plan: Le Châtelier s principle can be used to determine the effects of each of these changes. Solve: (a) The system will adjust to decrease the concentration of the added N 2 O 4, so the equilibrium shifts to the right, in the direction of products. (b) The system will adjust to the removal of NO 2 by shifting to the side that produces more NO 2 ; thus, the equilibrium shifts to the right. (c) Adding N 2 will increase the total pressure of the system, but N 2 is not involved in the reaction. The partial pressures of NO 2 and N 2 O 4 are therefore unchanged, and there is no shift in the position of the equilibrium. (d) If the volume is increased, the system will shift in the direction that occupies a larger volume (more gas molecules); thus, the equilibrium shifts to the right. (This is the opposite of the effect observed in Figure 15.13, where the volume was decreased.) (e) The reaction is endothermic, so we can imagine heat as a reagent on the reactant side of the equation. Decreasing the temperature will shift the equilibrium in the direction that produces heat, so the equilibrium shifts to the left, toward the formation of more N 2 O 4. Note that only this last change also affects the value of the equilibrium constant, K.

26 Sample Exercise Using Le Châtelier s Principal to Predict shifts in Equilibrium Practice Exercise For the reaction in which direction will the equilibrium shift when (a) Cl 2 (g) is removed, (b) the temperature is decreased, (c) the volume of the reaction system is increased, (d) PCl 3 (g) is added? Answer: (a) right, (b) left, (c) right, (d) left

27 Sample Exercise Predicting the Effect of Temperature on K (a) Using the standard heat of formation data in Appendix C, determine the standard enthalpy change for the reaction (b) Determine how the equilibrium constant for this reaction should change with temperature. Solution Analyze: We are asked to determine the standard enthalpy change of a reaction and how the equilibrium constant for the reaction varies with temperature. Plan: (a) We can use standard enthalpies of formation to calculate ΔH for the reaction. (b) We can then use Le Châtelier s principle to determine what effect temperature will have on the equilibrium constant. Solve: (a) Recall that the standard enthalpy change for a reaction is given by the sum of the standard molar enthalpies of formation of the products, each multiplied by its coefficient in the balanced chemical equation, less the same quantities for the reactants. At 25 C, ΔH f for NH 3 (g) is kj/mol. The ΔH f values for H 2 (g) and N 2 (g) are zero by definition because the enthalpies of formation of the elements in their normal states at 25 C are defined as zero (Section 5.7). Because 2 mol of NH 3 is formed, the total enthalpy change is (b) Because the reaction in the forward direction is exothermic, we can consider heat a product of the reaction. An increase in temperature causes the reaction to shift in the direction of less NH 3 and more N 2 and H 2. This effect is seen in the values for K p presented in Table Notice that K p changes markedly with changes in temperature and that it is larger at lower temperatures.

28 Sample Exercise Predicting the Effect of Temperature on K Solution (continued) Comment: The fact that K p for the formation of NH 3 from N 2 and H 2 decreases with increasing temperature is a matter of great practical importance. To form NH 3 at a reasonable rate requires higher temperatures. At higher temperatures, however, the equilibrium constant is smaller, and so the percentage conversion to NH 3 is smaller. To compensate for this, higher pressures are needed because high pressure favors NH 3 formation. Practice Exercise Using the thermodynamic data in Appendix C, determine the enthalpy change for the reaction Use this result to determine how the equilibrium constant for the reaction should change with temperature. Answer: ΔH = kj; the equilibrium constant will increase with increasing temperature

29 Sample Integrative Exercise Putting Concepts Together At temperatures near 800 C, steam passed over hot coke (a form of carbon obtained from coal) reacts to form CO and H 2 : The mixture of gases that results is an important industrial fuel called water gas. (a) At 800 C the equilibrium constant for this reaction is K p = What are the equilibrium partial pressures of H 2 O, CO, and H 2 in the equilibrium mixture at this temperature if we start with solid carbon and mol of H 2 O in a 1.00-L vessel? (b) What is the minimum amount of carbon required to achieve equilibrium under these conditions? (c) What is the total pressure in the vessel at equilibrium? (d) At 25 C the value of K p for this reaction is Is the reaction exothermic or endothermic? (e) To produce the maximum amount of CO and H 2 at equilibrium, should the pressure of the system be increased or decreased? Solution (a) To determine the equilibrium partial pressures, we use the ideal gas equation, first determining the starting partial pressure of hydrogen.

30 Sample Integrative Exercise Putting Concepts Together Solution (continued) We then construct a table of starting partial pressures and their changes as equilibrium is achieved: There are no entries in the table under C(s) because the reactant, being a solid, does not appear in the equilibrium-constant expression. Substituting the equilibrium partial pressures of the other species into the equilibrium-constant expression for the reaction gives Multiplying through by the denominator gives a quadratic equation in x:

31 Sample Integrative Exercise Putting Concepts Together Solution (continued) (b) Part (a) shows that x = 6.14 atm of H 2 O must react for the system to achieve equilibrium. We can use the ideal-gas equation to convert this partial pressure into a mole amount. Thus, mol of H 2 O and the same amount of C must react to achieve equilibrium. As a result, there must be at least mol of C (0.836 g C) present among the reactants at the start of the reaction. (c) The total pressure in the vessel at equilibrium is simply the sum of the equilibrium partial pressures: (d) In discussing Le Châtelier s principle, we saw that endothermic reactions exhibit an increase in K p with increasing temperature. Because the equilibrium constant for this reaction increases as temperature increases, the reaction must be endothermic. From the enthalpies of formation given in Appendix C, we can verify our prediction by calculating the enthalpy change for the reaction, ΔH = ΔH f (CO) + ΔH f (H 2 ) ΔH (C) ΔH f (H 2 O) = kj. The positive sign for ΔH indicates that the reaction is endothermic. (e) According to Le Châtelier s principle, a decrease in the pressure causes a gaseous equilibrium to shift toward the side of the equation with the greater number of moles of gas. In this case there are two moles of gas on the product side and only one on the reactant side. Therefore, the pressure should be reduced to maximize the yield of the CO and H 2.
