## What is the equilibrium constant for FeSCN2+?

By spectroscopy and Beer’s Law, it is found that [**FeSCN2+**] at **equilibrium** is 1.50 x 10-4 M.

## What is the KC value for FeSCN2+?

The absorbance of this solution is measured, and the equilibrium **FeSCN2+**(aq) concentration is found to be 1.0 × 10 –3 M. Determine the **value** of **Kc**. = 40. One point is earned for the correct equilibrium concentration.

## What is the equilibrium constant for the reaction between iron III and thiocyanate ions?

It has an **equilibrium constant**, K, given by: The FeSCN^{2}^{+} complex that is formed as a result **of reaction between iron**(**III) and thiocyanate ions** has a very intense blood red color (or orange in dilute solution), allowing for easy detection and quantitative determination by spectrophotometry.

## What is the extinction coefficient of Fe SCN 2+ in this experiment?

At the wavelength of maximum absorbance, λmax, the molar **extinction coefficient**, ε, for the product, **Fe**(**SCN**)**2**+, is 6120 M-1cm-1.

## What is the equilibrium constant expression for the reaction?

For gases, the equilibrium constant expression can be written as the ratio of the partial pressures of the products to the partial pressures of the reactants, each raised to a power matching its **coefficient** in the chemical equation.

_{eq}## How do you find equilibrium constant from absorbance?

X = [Fe(SCN)2+] and is to be determined from the standard curve. You can then **calculate** the **equilibrium constant**, Keq, using the **equilibrium** concentrations. The standard curve is a plot of **Absorbance** versus [Fe(SCN)2+] (Figure 8.1). It can be used to give us the concentration of a solution when given the **absorbance**.

## How do you calculate KC?

For the reaction A+B=AB, the equilibrium constant **Kc** is defined as [AB]/[A][B]. Brackets denote reagent concentrations that must be given in order to **compute Kc**. As an example, we will **calculate Kc** for two reactions.

## Why is iron thiocyanate red?

**Ferric** ions—that is, ions—react in aqueous solution with **thiocyanate** ions—that is, ions—to form a dark **red** colored complex of **iron thiocyanate**. **Ferric** ions—that is, ions—react in aqueous solution with **thiocyanate** ions—that is, ions—to form a dark **red** colored complex of **iron thiocyanate**.

## How do you find the initial concentration of Fe3+ and SCN?

– To **find** the **initial concentration** of **SCN**–, use the dilution **equation**: (M1V 1)/V 2 = M2, where V2 = 10 mL. – To **find** the **initial concentration of Fe3+**, use the dilution **equation**: (M1V 1)/V 2 = M2, where V2 = 10 mL.

## How do you calculate molar absorptivity?

Using the values you obtained for A, c, and l, plug them into the equation ɛ = A/lc. Multiply l by c and then divide A by the product to solve for **molar absorptivity**. For example: Using a cuvette with a length of 1 cm, you measured the absorbance of a solution with a concentration of 0.05 mol/L.

## Does Iron absorb light?

This complex **absorbs light** in the visible region rather strongly with a maximum absorbance occurring around 510 nm. In this experiment the **iron** content of an unknown will be determined by comparing the absorbance at a specific wavelength of an unknown solution to that of standards.
