4-6 Review Sheet ANSWER KEY


Fill in the chart below which summarizes some of the key concepts from Zumdahl Ch 15
When is a reaction considered to
When the rate of the forward reaction is equal to the rate of the reverse reaction. At
be at equilibrium?
equilibrium, the [products] and [reactants] stays constant but the concentrations of
products and reactants are not equal to each other.
Which substances do you include Aqueous solutions and gases. You DO NOT include solids and liquids.
in an equilibrium expression?
What does Q represent? What
Q is the reaction quotient. Write a K expression, fill in concentrations or pressures.
does it tell you?
If Q is not equal to K, the reaction is not at equilibrium. If Q<K, the reaction will
need to shift towards the products. If Q>K, the reaction will need to shift towards the
reactants.
When do you use a RICE box?
When you are trying to find the concentration of the products and reactants at
equilibrium.

(b) Kc reverse rxn = [H2] [CO2] = 1 = 1 = 0.20
[H2O] [ CO] Kc 5.0
(c) Kp = Kc (RT) n = (5.0) [(0.0821 L*atm/mol*K)(2000K)](2-2) = (5.0) (1) = 5.0
n = 0 therefore Kp = Kc (or, Kp = 5.0)
Challenge not on test (d) assuming a 1 L container, 30% of CO = (.30)(0.55 moles) = 0.165 moles of CO reacting. Since
all reactants and products are in a 1:1:1:1 ratio with each other, 0.165 moles CO reacting = 0.165 moles H 2O reacting =
0.165 moles CO2 formed = 0.165 moles of H2 formed. So subtracting or adding the 0.165 moles to each chemical results
in the following # moles and Molarities at a lower T:

Since [S2] is .02976M, then
x = .02976

4.) (a) Kc = [H2] [I2]
[HI]2
(b) From graph, [HI] starts at 1.0M, then slowly goes down and then stays at 0.80M which is at equilibrium.
(c) Using the info from the graph, i.e. that [HI] = 1.0M initially and [HI] = 0.80M at equilibrium:

(d) Curve should start at 0 M, increase to 0.1 M and reach equilibrium at the same time [HI] reaches equilibrium
(e) i.) Kc = [0.10] [0.10] = 0.016
[0.80]2
ii.) Kp = Kc (RT) n = (0.016) [(0.0821L*atm/mol*K)(700K)](2-2) = (0.016) (1) = 0.016
(anything to the zero power is 1)
(f) Q = (0.10) (0.50) = 8.9x10-2
Kc = 2.6x10-2

(0.75)
Q > Kc therefore the reaction will shift to the left towards the reactants, so [HI] will be greater
than the initial concentration of HI.

5.) The equilibrium concentrations for this reaction at 425C are [SO3] = 0.50 M; [SO2] = 0.80 M; [O2] = 0.15M

a. Calculate Kp (Hint, use the formula on the green sheet)


Kp = Kc (RT)n = 2.6 (0.0821 * 698)-1 = 0.045
n = mols gas products mols gas reactants = 2mols gas 3 mols gas = -1
T = 425oC + 273 = 698 K
R = 0.0821 L*atm/mol*K
6.)

What is the Kc value for the following reaction:


N2O4(g)

2NO2(g)

Kc = ?

The Kc expression for N2O4(g) 2NO2(g) would be


Kc =
[NO2]2
[N2O4]
Since the Kc expression for the reverse reaction 2NO2(g)
N2O4(g) would be
is 2.3 x 102
Kc =
[N2O4]
and the Kc expression for the reverse rxn is the inverse of Kc for the forward rxn,
2
[NO2]
Then the Kc value for the reverse reaction would be the inverse of the Kc value for the forward reaction:
Kc =

2.3 x 10
7.)

H2(g) + Cl2(g)
2HCl(g)
Kc = 2.3 x 102
If the concentrations of [H2] = .60 M; [Cl2] = .80 M; and [HCl] = .25 M at 430C , is the reaction at
equilibrium? If not, which way will it shift to reach equilibrium (towards reactants or toward products)?
Q = [HCl]2 =
(0.25)2
[H2] [Cl2]
(0.60) (0.80)

= 0.130

.130 = Q < K = 230

**Not at equilibrium, Q < K therefore the reaction will shift towards the products
8.) Calculate the equilibrium concentrations of the reactants and products for the following reaction at 430C if
initially you started with [H2] = .50 M; [Cl2] = .50 M and if the equilibrium constant, Kc = 2.3 x 102

Answers to 15.48 a) [PH3] = [BCl3] = 0.0432 M b) a little bit more than 3.27 g PH3BCl3

b) This is just a stoichiometry problemin order to have 0.0432 M of either PH3 or BCl3 in a 0.500 L
container, you have to have a minimum of PH3BCl3 to make it. Remember, in the original problem, you
started with some solid PH3BCl3.
0.500 L PH3
0.0432 mol PH3
1 mol PH3BCl3
151.3 g PH3BCl3
=3.27 g PH3BCl3
1L
1 mol PH3
1 mol PH3BCl3

Keep in mind, you need not all of the PH3BCl3 to be used up, need a little left to be in equilibrium, so you
need a little more than 3.27 g PH3BCl3

at equilibrium: [Sr ] = x, [F] = 2x
Ksp = [Sr2+] [F]2 = (x) (2x)2 = 4x3 = 7.9 x 10-10
x = 5.8 x 104 M = solubility of SrF2
c)
Solve for [Sr+] required for precipitation of each salt.
Ksp = [Sr2+][F]2 = 7.9 x 10 10
= (x) (0.020 M)2 = 7.9 x 1010
2+
[Sr ]= x = 2.0 x 10-6 M
Ksp = [Sr2+][SO42] = 7.6 x 10-7
= (x) (0.10 M) = 7.6 x 10-7
[Sr2+]= x = 7.6 x 10-6 M
Since 2.0 x 10-6 M < 7.6 x 10-6 M, SrF2 must precipitate first.
When SrF2 precipitates, [Sr2+] = 2.0 x 10-6 M
d) The second precipitate to form is SrSO4, which appears when [Sr2+] = 7.6 x 10-6 M (Based on calculation in
Part c.)
When [Sr2+] = 7.6 x 10-6M, [F] that will still be in solution is determined as follows:
Ksp = [Sr2+][F]2 = 7.9 x 10-10
= (7.6 x 106) (x)2 = 7.9 x 10-10
[F-] = x = 1.0 x 10-2 M
%F still in solution = 1.0 x 10-2 / 2.0 x 10-2 x 100 = 50.% (not a very good separation technique
