About This Chapter
Chemical Equilibria - Chapter Summary
This chapter includes lessons on chemical equilibria. There are engaging discussions on chemical reactions, reversible chemical reactions, and more. After completing the chapter, you should be prepared to:
- Understand chemical reactions and balancing chemical equations
- Define reversible chemical reactions
- Discuss functions of dynamic equilibrium
- Explain LeChatelier's principle on disruption and re-establishment of equilibrium
We use short and interesting video lessons, which helps you to easily understand the topic presented. Our expert instructors employ an informative teaching style, using plenty of examples. The video timelines help you navigate the videos and jump straight to the topics that are of greatest interest to you. Each lesson includes a brief multiple-choice quiz to test your knowledge. Full video transcripts are available.
1. Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations
In this lesson, you'll learn how to balance a chemical reaction equation using the conservation of matter law. You'll also learn how to write both word and formula equations, what the subscripts after a letter mean and what the numbers in front of compounds mean.
2. Reversible Chemical Reactions: Definition & Examples
Chemical reactions don't just go forwards; sometimes, they can go backwards. Learn what a reversible chemical reaction is, and see some examples of such reactions.
3. Dynamic Equilibrium: Definition, Function & Examples
In this lesson, we will discuss dynamic equilibrium and define the equilibrium constant expression, K, for a given reaction. We will also use an example to practice calculating the equilibrium constant.
4. LeChatelier's Principle: Disruption and Re-Establishment of Equilibrium
Learn how Le Chatelier's Principle describes the disruption and re-establishment of equilibrium. Learn to explain the factors that disrupt equilibrium, such as concentration, temperature, and pressure. Learn how each of these factors affects a system in equilibrium.
