We're being asked to identify which of the given statements is true at equilibrium for the following reaction:
2 NH3 (g) ⇌ N2 (g) + 3 H2 (g) Ke = 2.30 x 10-5 at 300 °C
K is the equilibrium expression of the concentrations in the reaction. The general form of an equilibrium expression is:
The equilibrium constant for the gas phase reaction
2 NH3 (g) ⇌ N2 (g) + 3 H2 (g)
is Ke= 2.30 x 10-5 at 300 °C. Which one of the statements is true at equilibrium?
a) The reactant predominates.
b) The products predominate.
c) Only products are present.
d) Only the reactant is present.
