Gas Phase Equilibrium: Pressure and Temperature—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Many important reactions that take place in the atmosphere involve equilibrium concentrations of gas phase reactants and products. With the Gas Phase Equilibrium: Pressure and Temperature—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, study the effects of changing the temperature and pressure on the relative amounts of NO2 and N2O4 in a sealed tube at equilibrium in terms of LeChâtelier’s Principle and its prediction of how a change in conditions will affect the equilibrium for a reversible chemical reaction.

  • Chemical Equilibrium
  • Gas-Phase Reactions
  • LeChâtelier’s Principle
  • Nitrogen Oxides
