Changing Kc
Like

H, when we manipulate a chemical reaction, the value of the equilibrium constant changes.

Three

possible changes:

1.Running

Reaction in Reverse

2.Multiplying

Reaction by Common Factor

Equilibriums

+Option 1: Running Reactions in Reverse
 If

we have the equilibrium
N2O ⇌ 2NO2

 Then

the value of the equilibrium constant is:
2

[NO2 ]
Kc 
1  0.212
[N2O4 ]
 If

we reverse the equilibrium, then it is now:
2NO ⇌ N2O

 

 Therefore,

the new equilibrium constant is
1

[N2O4 ]
1
Kc 
2 
[NO2 ]
0.212

When a reaction is run in reverse, the equilibrium constant is

+
Option 2: Multiplying by a Constant
 Like

Hess’s Law, we can multiply equilibriums in order to add them.

 If

we multiply the previous equilibrium by two, then we get:

2N2O

4NO2

 Like

Hess’s Law, we can add equilibriums to obtain the desired reaction

 When

we add equilibriums, the equilibrium constants are multiplied.

Changing Kc Summary
1.

Kc of a rxn in the reverse direction is the inverse of the Kc of the forward rxn.

2.

The Kc of a rxn that has been multiplied by a number is the Kc raised to a power equal to that number.

3.

The Kc for a net rxn made up of two or more steps is the product of the equilibrium constants for the individual steps.

+Class Example

 Given

the reaction:

HF (aq) ⇌

H+ (aq) + F- (aq)

Kc = 6.8 x 104

H2C2O4 (aq) ⇌ 2 H+ (aq) + C2O42- (aq)
Kc =
3.8 x 10-6

 Given

the reaction:

H2 (g) + I2 (g) ⇌ 2HI (g)
N2 (g) + 3 H2 (g) ⇌ 2NH3 (g)

 Determine

Kp = 1.04 x

the value of Kp for the reaction:

2 NH3 (g) + 3 I2 (g) ⇌

Kp= 15.1

 The

following equilibrium was obtained at
823 K:
CoO (s) + H2 (g)

CoO (s) + CO (g)

Co (s) + H2O (g)
⇌ 67

Kc =

Co (s) + CO2 (g)
490

Kc =

 Based

on these equilibrium, calculate the equilibrium constant for:
H2 (g) + CO2 (g)

Kc= 0.14
 Assume

CO (g) + H2O

it is also at 823 K.

Homogeneous vs.
Heterogeneous Equilibria
 Homogeneous
 When

Equilibria

all substances are in the same phase

 Heterogeneous
 When

Equilibria

substances are in different phases
 Whenever a pure solid or a pure liquid is involved in a heterogeneous equilibrium, its concentration is not included in the equilibrium constant expression for the reaction +
Example 1
 Write

the equilibrium-constant expression Kc for the following rxns:

a)

CO2 (g) + H2O (g) ⇌ CO(g) + H2O (l)

b)

SnO2 (s) + 2CO (g) ⇌ Sn(s) + 2CO2
(g)

+Calculating Equilibrium Concentrations
Oftentimes,

we know the amount of substance that we begin with, but the equilibrium amounts are unknown.

We

use stoichiometry to help solve for the equilibrium concentrations using the initial conditions and the value of Kc.
