I hope to finish reviewing your exams and watch the Super Bowl on Sunday … Bizarro by Dan Piraro Read 18.1 – 18.5 Practice PS #3 is posted. 1 2 Quantitative chemical equilibrium The equilibrium constant 3.00 mol H 2 (g)nd 6.00 mol F 2 (g)re mixed in a 3.00 L  Determination of K flask. They react to equilibrium to form HF (g) K =  Determination of the position of equilibrium (i.e. all 1.15 x 10 2. concentrations at equilibrium) Find the position of equilibrium (i.e. concentrations).  Simplifying calculations H 2 (g) + F 2 (g)  2 HF (g) Initial1.0002.0.000M Change – x – x + 2x Equil. 1.000 – x 2.000 – x + 2x [HF] 2 (2x)2 2 K = [H 2[F2] = (1.000 – x)(2.000 – x)= 1.15 x 10 3 4 Rearrange and solve: Simplifying calculations 2 111x – 345x + 230 = 0  K is small  K is large This has the form of a quadratic equation K is very small 2 –b  b – 4ac If you add (or subtract) two numbers, one very large ax + bx + c = 0 x = 2a compared with the other one, the result can be a = 111 b = – 345 c = 230 approximated by the larger number. x1= 2.14 M impossible 1–x1is –ve in E (ICE) Large number  small number  large number x2 = 0.968 M Say 100 + 1  100 error is 1% Or 100 – 1  100 error is 1% The position of equilibrium is: Anything below 5% is acceptable When K is very small, the change x is also very small [H 2 = 1.000 – 0.968 = 0.032 M Large/small is relative. Generally K values with [F2] = 2.000 – 0.968 = 1.032 M negative powers of 10 are considered small, while those [HF] = 2 x 0.968 = 1.936 M with positive powers are considered large. But always look for the relative magnitude to other data. 5 6 K is very small K is small  x is small –5 K = 1.6 x 10 for the gas phase rxn of NOCl Approximate 0.50 – 2x  0.50 decomposing to nitric oxide and chlorine.
