Lesson Plans

Standard 5

Students will understand that many factors influence chemical reactions and some reactions can achieve a state of dynamic equilibrium.

Objective 2

Recognize that certain reactions do not convert all reactants to products, but achieve a state of dynamic equilibrium that can be changed.
  • "Equal"-ibrium?
    Students read an article and answer questions about dynamic equilibrium. Then they perform an activity to demonstrate a dynamic equilibrium where the "reactants" and "products" are not equal at equilibrium, and construct a graph to demonstrate their data.
  • Disturbing Equilibrium
    Students will determine the effect of altering various ion concentrations on the iron (III) thiocyanate equilibrium system.
  • Quantitative Production & Recovery of Sodium Sulfate
    Students will measure the production of CuCO3 (s) + Na2SO4 (aq) from the reaction of CuSO4 (aq) + Na2CO3 (aq).
