Que 23. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:
Equilibrium can be established for both physical and chemical processes and at the equilibrium rate of forwarding reaction and rate of the backward process are equal equilibrium constant KC is expressed as the concentration of products divided by the concentration of reactants each raised to stoichiometric coefficient. KC value has a fixed value of constant temperature and at this stage concentration pressure etc, become constant KP is the equilibrium constant in terms of partial pressure of gases or vapours. The direction of reaction can be predicted by reaction quotient QC and Qp, when QC is equal to KC or QP are equal to KP then equilibrium establishes. Le-Chatelier’s principle states equilibrium will shift in the direction so as to counterbalance the effect of change in temperature, pressure, and concentration. The equilibrium between ions and unionized molecules in the weak electrolytes is called ionic equilibrium.
Using the above case answer the following questions
(i) At a certain temperature Kp = 9/4 for the reaction
CO(g) + H2O(g) ⇌ CO2(g) + H2(g). if 10 moles of each of four gases are taken in 1 litre container, what will be the concentration of H2 gas at equilibrium.
In the reaction H2(g) + I2(g) ⇌ 2 HI(g)                                                                             2
(ii) At equilibrium if the concentration of the reactants increased what effect will be seen in the value of equilibrium constant Kc at a given temperature.                                                                1
(iii) If the value of an equilibrium constant for a particular reaction is 1.6 × 1012 what will be the major component present in the system at equilibrium.                                                               1
(iv) Equilibrium constant K1 for reaction 3H2(g) + N2(g) ⇌ 2NH3(g) is 49, what is equilibrium constant K2 for NH3(g) ⇌ N2(g) + 3/2 H2O(g).                                                                                            1

Que 24. Arrhenius acids give H+ ion in aqueous solution whereas bases give OH in aqueous solution. Bronsted acids are proton donors whereas Bronsted bases are proton acceptors. Acids, on donating proton form conjugate base whereas bases form conjugate acid after accepting a proton. A buffer solution is a solution whose pH does not change by adding a small amount of H+ or OH. The decrease in conc. of one of the ions by adding another ion as the common ion is called the common ion effect. Lewis’s acids are electron deficient or + vely charged. Lewis bases are electron-rich or negatively charged. Ksp (solubility product) is the product of the molar concentration of ions raised to power the number of ions per formula of the compound is a sparingly soluble salt. Precipitation occurs only if the ionic product exceeds the solubility product. The solubility of salt decreases in presence of common ions. Kw is an ionic product of water, 1 × 10–14 at 298 K. Kw increases with an increase in temperature. pH is – log [H3O+] where [H3O+] = Cµ in monoprotic acid ‘C’ is molar conc., ‘µ’ is the degree of ionization. A salt is said to be hydrolyzed if the pH of the solution changes. KH is a hydrolytic constant. The pH of salts of strong acid and strong base is equal to 7. pH of other salts can be 7. pH of buffer solution can be calculated with the help of Henderson equation.
