Equilibrium Constants from Molecular Structure
This applet uses statistical mechanics to calculate the equilibrium constant for a simple
bimolecular chemical reaction involving diatomic molecules and atoms.
You can use the pre-set examples or
you can input your own. You can calculate Ae, Be, and
Ce using the calculators at the bottom of the page.
Allowable element names are:
with the element symbol without the mass number, the most abundant isotope.
For example, H = 1H, S = 32S, and Cl = 35Cl.
A simpler version of this applet for
is also available.
