Lesson: Choosing Equilibrium Conditions Chemistry
In this lesson, we will learn how to predict the effect of changing the temperature, concentration, or pressure can have on the yield of industrial reactions and the financial consequences.
Hydrogen can be produced using methane and steam and the forward reaction is endothermic, as shown: Which of the following changes in conditions would cause no change in the equilibrium yield but increase the rate of reaction?
The production of methanol is a reversible reaction and the forward reaction is exothermic. Consider the following reaction: Which of the following changes in conditions would cause a decrease in the equilibrium yield but an increase in the rate of reaction?
The contact process, illustrated in the diagram, is a step in the production of sulfuric acid:
Which of the following statements about altering the temperature is true?
