The reaction quotient, Q, can be calculated like an equilibrium constant with the formula shown below:
The “filmstrip” represents five molecular scenes of a gaseous mixture as it reaches equilibrium over time:
X is purple and Y is orange: X2(g) + Y2(g) ⇌ 2XY(g).
(a) Write the reaction quotient, Q, for this reaction.
(b) If each particle represents 0.1 mol, find Q for each scene.
