FREE Expert Solution

We are asked which of the following conditions indicate equilibrium has been reached?


Equilibrium is reached when the concentrations of the reactants and products don't change anymore through time. 


Analyze each expression:

I. Qc = Kc

  • The reaction quotient (Qc) is the ratio of the products and reactants of the concentrations at any time.
