Reversible Chemical Kinetics Model
written by Fernando Silva Fernandes
The Reversible Chemical Kinetics Model illustrates the time evolution of a reversible chemical reaction, from a given set of initial reactants concentration until chemical equilibrium is reached. The concentrations are plotted against time and the respective numerical values are periodically displayed at the data Table. As chemical equilibrium is attained, the concentrations become constant, the reaction quotient (Q) equalizes the equilibrium constant and Gibbs's energy change (G/RT) approaches zero.

The Reversible Chemical Kinetics Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.   Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the map and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.6 of Java (JRE).
