Boltzmann's Equation

APCHEM-QUYBKE

Boltzmann's equation relates the number of microstates in a system, W, to the entropy of the system, and it is directly tied into a Boltzmann distribution.

For a mixture of real gases, which of the following changes would be represented on a Boltzmann distribution graph?

A

The change in concentration of reactant molecules during the progress of the reaction.

B

The chemical structure of the substance reacting in the system.

C

The change in the actual number of gas particles in the container for the gas mixture.

D

The number of molecules with enough energy to overcome the activation energy of the reaction.
