🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Kasner's class at Montclair State University.

Solution: Consider the reaction A(g) ⇌ B(g). The images shown here illustrate equilibrium mixtures of A (red) and g (black) at three different temperatures.At which temperature is the equilibrium constant the largest?

Problem
Consider the reaction A(g) ⇌ B(g). The images shown here illustrate equilibrium mixtures of A (red) and g (black) at three different temperatures.
The figure shows illustration equilibrium mixtures at different temperatures. At temperature T1, there are 4 black and 6 red balls in the mixture, at temperature T2 - 5 black and 5 red balls, and at temperature T3 - 8 black and 2 red balls.

At which temperature is the equilibrium constant the largest?
Solution

Recall the expression for the equilibrium constant K:


Let’s estimate the value of the equilibrium constant in each temperature:

Reactant = red spheres

Product = black spheres
