MCAT Gen. Chem Ch. 6

Reversible Reactions Eventually: Reach a state in which energy is minimized and entropy is maximized.
Chemical Equilibria Are: Dynamic, meaning that the reactions are still occurring just at a constant rate
If Q < Keq: Delta G < 0, and the reaction proceeds in the forward direction
If Q = Keq: Delta G = 0, and the reaction is in dynamic equilibrium.
If Q > Keq Delta G > 0, and the reaction proceeds in the reverse direction.
Le Chatelier's Principle States that when a chemical system experiences a stress, it will react so as to restore equilibrium
Three Main Stresses Applied To A System Include: Changes in conc, pressure and volume, and temp.
Increasing Conc Of Reactants / Decreasing Conc Of Products Will: Shifts the reaction to the right
Increasing Pressure On A Gaseous System (Decreasing Its Volume) Will: Shift the reaction toward the side with fewer moles of gas.
Increasing Temp. Of An Endothermic Reaction / Decreasing Temp Of Exothermic Reaction Will: Shift the reaction to the right
Kinetic Products Are: Higher in free energy than thermodynamic products and can form at lower temperatures. They are also called "fast products"
Thermodynamic Products Are: Lower in free energy than kinetic products and are more stable. The thermodynamic pathway is more spontaneous (more negative Delta G)
Eq. 6.1: Equilibrium Constant Keq = [C]^c * [D] ^d / [A] ^ a * [B] ^ b. small c = reaction coefficients.
Eq. 6.2: Reaction Quotient Qc = [C]^c * [D] ^d / [A] ^ a * [B] ^ b. small c = reaction coefficients.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
