**What is the Equilibrium? **

Equilibrium is the state of a process in which the properties like the concentration of the system, pressure, and temperature do not change with the passage of time. It can be established for both chemical and physical processes. At the stage of equilibrium, the rate of forwarding and reverse reactions are equal. The state of equilibrium can only be achieved if the reversible reaction is taking place in a closed system.

**NCERT Solutions for Class 11 Chemistry Chapter 7 Equilibrium **

** Question ****7.1(a) ** A liquid is in equilibrium with its vapour in a sealed container at a fixed temperature. The volume of the container is suddenly increased.

What is the initial effect of the change on vapour pressure?

** Answer ** :

By increasing the volume of the container suddenly, initially, the vapour pressure would decrease. It is due to, the amount of vapour has remained the same but it is distributed in a larger volume.

** Question ****7.1(b) ** A liquid is in equilibrium with its vapour in a sealed container at a fixed temperature. The volume of the container is suddenly increased.

How do rates of evaporation and condensation change initially?

** Answer ** :

Here the temperature is constant so that the rate of evaporation is also the same as before. On increasing the volume of the container, the density of vapour decreases due to which the rate of collision between vapour particles decreases. Hence the condensation rate also decreases initially.

** Question ****7.1(c) ** A liquid is in equilibrium with its vapour in a sealed container at a fixed temperature. The volume of the container is suddenly increased .

What happens when equilibrium is restored finally and what will be the final vapour pressure?

** Answer ** :

When equilibrium is restored, the rate of evaporation is equal to the rate of condensation. The temperature is constant and the volume is changed. The vapour pressure is temperature-dependent, not volumes. So, that final vapour pressure is equal to the initial vapour pressure.

After adding hydrochloric acid, the concentration of ions increases and due to that the equilibrium shifts towards the backward direction. It means dissociation will decrease.

(i) when 0.01 HCl is taken

Initial conc. 0.05 0 0

after dissociation 0.05 - 0.001+

As the dissociation is very small.

So we can write 0.001+ 0.001 and 0.05 - 0.05
