Acid and Base Equilibrium

posted by .

What would happen to a weak base dissociation equilibrium if more products were added?

  • Acid and Base Equilibrium -

    It will force the equilibrium to the left meaning that less of the acid will dissociate.
    CH3COOH ==> CH3COO^- + H^+
    If I add acetate ion (say from sodium acetate) or H^+ (say from HCl), Le Chatelie's Principle takes over and the reaction shifts to the left. That means the acid is less dissociated.
