Title           : Chemical Equilibrium

Objective       : To study the effects of concentration and temperature on chemical equilibrium.
                : To determine the equilibrium constant, Kc, of a reaction.


There are two kinds of chemical reaction, i.e. irreversible and reversible. A reversible reaction will
reach a dynamic equilibrium when the rate of the forward reaction is equal to the rate of the reverse
reaction. At this stage, one cannot see any changes in the system. However, this does not mean that
the reactions have stopped. The are still occurring but at the same rate

The factors that influence chemical equilibrium are:
    i. Concentration
    ii. Temperature
    iii. Pressure (for reactions that involve gas)

Le Chatelier’s Principle is used to determine the position of the equilibrium when one of the above
factors is changed.

Le Chatelier’s Principle states that if a system at equilibrium is disturbed by a change in temperature,
pressure or concentration of one or more components, the system will shift its equilibrium position
in such a way so as to counteract the effect of the disturbance.

The effect of concentration

According to the Le Chatelier’s principle, the changes in concentration of any substance in a mixture
at equilibrium will cause the equilibrium position to shift its equilibrium position in such a way so as
to counteract the effect of the disturbance.

Consider a general reaction as follows:


If substance A or B is added to a mixture at equilibrium, the reaction will shift forward to reduce the
concentration of A or B until equilibrium is re-established.
On the other hand, if substance C or D is added, the equilibrium will shift in the direction that will
reduce the concentration of C or D, i.e. from right to left until equilibrium is reestablished.
The effect of temperature

The effect of temperature on an equilibrium system depends on whether the reaction is exothermic.
Consider the following system:


If the forward reaction is exothermic then the heat released is considered as one of the products.
Heating the system will cause the equilibrium to shift in the reverse direction so as to reduce the
excess heat. Thus, the concentration of E and F increase while the concentration of G decreases.
However, when the system is cooled, the equilibrium will move forward to increase the heat in the
system. The same principle can be applied to explain an endothermic system.

In this experiment, you will study the effect of changes in concentration and temperature on two
equilibrium systems. You can notice the shift in equilibrium through changes in colour or phases
such as precipitation or dissolution.

Discussion :

i. How to get the best accuracy of concentration of H₂SO₄ and vinegar?
   The experiment is repeated by using titration process for three times to get accurate
   concentration value. From the three readings, the average value is obtained.
ii. How does the concentration of vinegar affected if added water?
    If the vinegar was added with water, the determination of concentration will not affected because
    of number of moles are still same.

iii. Suggest other indicators that can be used for the above titrations?
    Other indicator that can be used other than phenolphthalein is universal indicator or methyl

Conclusion :

       The concentration of H2SO4 1.631M(stock solution) and 0.0848M(dilute solution)
       the concentration of CH3COOH is 1.220 M.
