The relation between given as:
Q: 6. For the following equilibrium,
Both the forward and reverse reactions in the equilibrium are elementary bimolecular reactions. What is for the reverse reaction?
It is given that for the forward reaction is
Then, for the reverse reaction will be,
Q: 7. Explain why pure liquids and solids can be ignored while writing the equilibrium constant expression?
For a pure substance (both solids and liquids),
Now, the molecular mass and density (at a particular temperature) of a pure substance is always fixed and is accounted for in the equilibrium constant. Therefore, the values of pure substances are not mentioned in the equilibrium constant expression.
