Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Chemical Equilibrium

What is an expression for the equilibrium constant for the above equation?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:


The formula for the equilibrium constant is the product of the concentration of the products divided by the product of the concentration of the reactants. Since none of the reactants or products have coefficients, no exponents are needed in the expression. The phases do not affect the equilibrium constant in this example.
