Chemical Equilibrium: Constants, Temperature, Concentrations

1. Describe the equilibrium constant in terms of the law of mass action and write equilibrium constant expression for multiple equilibria.

2. Relate the constants and equilibrium constants and describe how equilibrium varies with temperature.

3. Use equilibrium constants to predict the direction of a reaction towards equilibrium and calculate equilibrium concentrations.

4. Why is it important to study chemical equilibrium? In what industries might such knowledge be particularly useful? Explain your answer.
