    Chemistry Chemistry equilibrium - Remove H2

    It is desired to remove the molecular hydrogen present in a flask. What will be better to introduce, ##Cl_2## or ##Br_2##? Why? ##2 HCl <-> H_2 + Cl_2## (1) ##k = 3,2.10^{-14}## ##H_2 + Br_2 <->2 HBr## (2) ##k = 2.10^9## I thought about turning equation (1) to make the...

    Small deviations from equilibrium and Lagrange multipliers

    According to the book "Principles of Statistical Mechanics" by Amnon Katz, page 123, ##\alpha## must be such that ##\exp ( -\alpha N ) ## can be expanded in powers of ##\alpha## with only the first order term kept. Is this the necessary and sufficient condition for small deviations from...

    Chemistry Solving for electron activity given pH and ratio of redox elements

    I've written out the half reaction 8e- + 9H+ + SO42- = HS- + 4H2O and I know the logK = 4.25 (that's the constant mentioned in the prompt) I've written out the equilibrium statement of 10^4.25 = ([x^1/8]*[H2O^1/2])/([10x^1/8]*[e-]*[(10^-8.2)^9/8] However, from there, it seems like I have two...

    Chemistry Finding the pH of this acid and its sodium salt solution

    For finding the pH of the acid, I made use of the equilibrium law (or the law of mass action) to arrive at the degree of dissociation which I later used to get the [H+] concentration. I am stuck in finding the pH of the salt solution. ##CH2ClOO^- + H2O <---> CHClOOH + OH^-## Could you please...

    Electrostatic force equilibrium

    I was thinking that we can equate the electrostatic potential energy and the spring energy (as the force is similar to that of a spring so energy will also be 1/2kx^2 ) but i am not getting the correct ans but by equating the net force on one charge to kr i am getting the correct ans can...

    Calculating a force on a member (Statics)

    I isolated the member ABC and drew the free body diagram: α is then calculated using inverse tan: Tan-1=(6.25+15)/50=23.03 Then force of member BD on the joint can be found by sum of all moments around point A. Then Ax is calculated which is equal to BD×Cos(α)=235.2×Cos(23.03) Ax=216.48...

    Is P(atm)=P(gas)?

    Homework Statement See this question. Homework Equations Pressure=Height*Density*Gravity The Attempt at a Solution I think P_atm=P_gas. I think so because for the two liquids(oil and Hg) to be in equilibrium the net force on them should be zero. And,since they are not getting displaced...
