Investigating Chemical Equilibrium


To recognize macroscopic properties of chemical systems at equilibrium; observe shifts in equilibrium concentrations as stresses are applied to the systems; and to explain the observations obtained by applying Le Chatelier's principle.

Initial Observations

* light blue
* transparent liquid
* light blue

- pink, transparent liquid

After 2[nd] addition

Added water

* hot pink/magenta
* transparent liquid
After Heated

* purple
* transparent liquid

After Cooled

* hot pink/magenta
* transparent liquid


Analysis of the Observations:

--Questions are listed on Lab Sheet --

1A The H[+] ion is the ion added which causes the stress on the equilibrium in procedure steps 2,3,4 and 5.

B For steps in procedure 2 & 3, the equilibrium is shifting to the right, whereas for steps 4 & 5, the equilibrium has been shifted to the left. We know this by noting the colour changes in the written equilibrium reaction compared to the observations noted through the steps in procedure.

2A The stress in step 4 would be the addition of distilled water. The stress in step 5 would be the addition of heat to the system. The stress in step 6 would be the removal of heat from the system by immersing it into cold water.

B In step four the equilibrium system would shift to the left, then in step five, a shift to the right and then in step six, a shift back to the left.
