This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic of Static and Dynamic Equilibrium. In this post, we conduct practical investigations to analyse the reversibility of chemical reactions, for example:
- Cobalt(II) chloride hydrated and dehydrated
- Iron(III) nitrate and potassium thiocyanate
- Burning magnesium
- Burning steel wool
Reversible Reactions and Equilibrium
This video introduces static and dynamic equilibrium with the reversibility of chemical reactions with examples.
A Crash Course on static and dynamic equilibrium featuring the example of hydrated and dehydrated cobalt chloride.
Dynamic Equilibrium Examples
The practical investigation of thermal decomposition of cobalt(II) chloride, displaying the dynamic equilibrium of cobalt chloride hexahydrate.
A practical demonstration of the dynamic equilibrium between iron (III) chloride and potassium thiocyanate. Making fake blood by demonstrating the reversibility of the dynamic equilibrium.
Static Equilibrium Examples
A demonstration of the static nature of the chemical reaction of burning a magnesium ribbon.
A demonstration of the static nature of the chemical reaction of burning steel wool.
