Chemguide: Support for CIE A level Chemistry
Learning outcome 7.1
Chemical equilibria: reversible reactions, dynamic equilibrium
This statement is an introduction to equilibrium constants in terms of concentration, Kc.
Before you go on, you should find and read the statement in your copy of the syllabus.
You will find what you need to know about Kc by following this link.
Ignore the bit at the bottom of the page about calculations for now.
The page assumes that you will already have come across the Contact Process and Haber Process equilibria. In the CIE syllabus, these don't come up until statement 7.1.10. If you aren't familiar with them, it really doesn't matter.
