Equilibrium Simulation Info

Go to Activity


This applet is similar to the stoichiometry simulation but applies to chemical reactions that do not go to completion. The calculation of the equilibrium state of such reactions is typically covered months after students learn how to solve limiting reagent problems. This applet uses the same visual layout as the limiting reagent applet, with the addition of a red dot indicating the equilibrium position of the reaction. The common visual theme will encourage students to make connections between this new material and that covered previously.
