Gas-Phase Chemical Equilibrium at Constant Pressure or Constant Volume
This simulation calculates the number of moles at equilibrium for a gas-phase reaction, A –> rB, where A and B are ideal gases; the value of r (0.5, 1, 1.5, or 2) is selected with buttons. Initially the container is filled with 5 mol of reactant A, and equilibrium is obtained at either constant pressure (the pressure is set with a slider) or constant volume (the starting pressure is set with a slider). The bar graph displays the number of moles at equilibrium, including the moles of inert gas (the moles of inert are selected with a slider). The height of the piston is proportional to the final volume.
