Equilibrium and Kinetics
Broad Concept: Chemical equilibrium is a dynamic process that is significant in many systems (biological, ecological and geological). Chemical reactions occur at different rates.
|9.1 ||Write the equilibrium expression and calculate the equilibrium constant for a reaction.|
|9.2 ||Predict the shift in equilibrium when the system is subjected to a stress (LeChatelier's principle).|
|9.3 ||Identify the factors that affect the rate of a chemical reaction (temperature, concentration) and the factors that can cause a shift in equilibrium (concentration, pressure, volume, temperature).|
|9.4 ||Explain rates of reaction in terms of collision frequency, energy of collisions,and orientation of colliding molecules.|
|9.5 ||Define the role of activation energy in a chemical reaction.|
