Flashcards in Reversible Reactions Deck (5):
1

Define dynamic equilibrium

When the rate of forward reaction and backward reaction remains constant, so that the concentration of products and reactants remains constant.

2

How can the dynamic equilibrium be altered in a reversible reaction?

Changing:
- concentration
- temperature
- pressure

3

What is Le Chatelier's Principle?

If the conditions of a system in dynamic equilibrium is altered, the system will move to oppose the change.

4

Optimum reaction conditions for Haber's Process

Temperature: 450-500 degrees
Pressure: 250 atmospheres
Catalyst: finely divided iron

5

Define reversible reaction

A reaction that may move either forwards or backwards.
