Equilibrium is the point in a reversible reaction where the rate of the forward reaction is the same as the rate of the backward reaction – or, more simply, the point at which the reaction settles down. Equilibrium is like the reset point for the reaction, and it will always return to this point. In this lesson we will gain a better understanding of chemical equilibrium. We will also look at how to calculate the equilibrium point and how to predict how the reaction will respond to different changes.
In this lesson we will cover Higher Level Leaving Cert Chemistry Equilibrium. This lesson will cover:
- Dynamic Equilibrium
- Equilibrium Constant Expression
- Calculating the Equilibrium Constant
- Le Chatelier’s Principle
- Exam Questions
