7. For the rxn: A + B + 200kJ <-> C + D, predict the effects after drecreasing [D].
a)release energy
b)increase [C]
c)both a and b

[b is definitely right, but I'm not quite sure about a...the temperature would decrease, but the 200kJ is in the left side of the rxn...]

haha.. the tabulation method i taught u is now called ICE. Cute name..
Normally, exam-wise, if you arent given the Ksp of Ca(OH)2, you can safely assume 100% dissociation.

what is dH for question(7) ?

what is deltaH for the reaction in question 7?

+200kJ, but according to Le Chatelier's principle, the 200kJ will decrease...

deltaH of a reaction is different from applying Q of 200kJ to the reaction system.

But after the stress and the equilibrium shift, the temperature of the SYSTEM will decrease(because heat energy decreased), right? (releasing energy?!)

Let me make an example that is similar.
5.20mL of 0.20M HCN is titrated with 0.35M NaOH. Find
a)pH initially and
b)at midpoint(halfway to equivalence).

I calculated this way:
a)HCN+NaOH->H2O+NaCN
HCN+H2O<->H3O+ + CN- (hydrolysis)
pH=4.95

b)HCN +   NaOH->H2O+NaCN
n=0.004    n=0.002
V=0.02      c=0.35
V of NaOH required to reach midpoint=0.002/0.35=0.00571

After rxn:
HCN +   NaOH->H2O+NaCN
n=0.002  n=0            n=0.002
c=n/V(total)
c=0.1556                   c=n/V0.07779

HCN+H2O<->H3O+ +CN-(hydrolysis)
pH=9.21
The results are surprising to me...the pH is so high at midpoint...all other weak acid/strong base quesitons I did before have midpoint at about 5 point something only. So did I calculated them right?

8.Which of the following is in a state of equilibrium
a)A container with 20mL of water
b)A container with an ice cube and water
c)both a and b
[would a container with 20mL of water be in a state of equilibrium]

(7) I'm not sure of your notation. I assume "..+200kJ" means u add 200kJ of heat, and it's not deltaH of the reaction. Adding heat to the system favours the endothermic reaction.

( for (a). H2O(l) <-> H2O (g), but for (b), there will be heat transfer from water to the ice that cause it to melt, hence no equilibrium.

7)Yes the reaction is endothermic:
A + B + heat <-> C + D
and then [D] is decreased, so shift right and [A], and heat all decreased. But heat decreased means temperature is lowed and is releasing energy, right? (heat energy is consumed...)

8b)H2O(l) <-> H2O(s) why not equilibrium? I thought that there will be equilibrium of melting and solidfying processes occuring at the same rate...

( Common sense lah, u put ice in water, what do u see? however, u find liquid water exist without any significant change in its mass..
