Equilibrium and Kinetics
At this point of advancements in science, chemists have a good understanding of the kinetics of reactions. They can predict the effects of changes in pH, temperature, and concentration in chemical reactions.
In a cylinder, there is a reaction mixture of hydrogen and iodine. The hydrogen and the iodine react to form hydrogen iodide.
The industrial production of ammonia is done by a process called Haber process. The reaction occurs as shown below, and is usually done in the presence of an iron catalyst.
ΔH = –92kJ
Which of the following is most likely to occur, if we take away H2 from the reaction mixture in Reaction 1?
|A||The reaction will proceed to the right|
|B||The reaction will suddenly reach equilibrium|
|C||The reaction will proceed to the left|
|D||No apparent effect will be observed|
