A Level Chemistry Revision: Physical Chemistry – Equilibrium Constant Kp For Homogeneous Systems

Analysing the chemical reactions of gases in homogeneous systems may seem daunting at first. Unlike a liquid solution, the volume of gas isn’t constant, so determining the concentration of specific gas reactants is difficult when you base it on volume. This is where the concepts related to the equilibrium constant Kp for homogeneous systems of gases come into play. However,...

What is Ammonium Hydroxide?

Ammonium hydroxide is a basic or alkaline solution of ammonia which has several applications, such as cleaning windows, treating water, producing alkyl amine, and processing food. It also has some use in the laboratory for qualitative inorganic analysis, and can be used as a chemical indicator. Ammonium hydroxide is otherwise known as ammonia solution, ammonia water, ammonia liquor, or aqua...

A Level Chemistry Revision: Physical Chemistry – Rate Equations

Determining the rate of chemical reactions can be done using rate equations, no matter what type of chemical reaction is taking place. Rate equations are crucial diagnostic tools that are used to analyse the efficiency of chemical reactions. For example, rate equations can be used by chemical manufacturing companies who need their processes to be as efficient as possible so...

What is Sodium Chloride?

Sodium chloride (NaCl), more popularly known as table salt, is one of the most common and important minerals on earth with culinary, commercial, and industrial value. This ionic compound is also essential to life. Many biological organisms would be unable to function properly without sodium chloride as an electrolyte component of cells, tissues, and systems. Sodium chloride is also crucial...
