After completing the topic, the student will be able to:
- Define a reversible reaction, equilibrium state, give a graphical representation of an equilibrium state and list the types of equilibrium based on phase of the system.
- Comment on dynamic nature of equilibrium.
- Define equilibrium constant and express the equilibrium constant in terms of partial pressures and concentrations of the reactants and products.
- State Le Chatelier's principle and discuss the factors effecting equilibrium state.
- Give the relation between equilibrium constant and temperature.
- Calculate the solubility product of sparingly soluble salts and predict the formation of precipitate in solution by comparing ionic product and solubility product.
- Distinguish exothermic and endothermic reactions.
- Define and calculate heat (energy) changes involved in a given reaction.
