Deriving a concentration-time graph to illustrate the effect of changing reaction conditions on an equilibrium must have been a particular area of concern, considering that both my JC 1 and 2 students are starting to ask me the same question as their promos and prelims draw near.

So I decided to prepare a worked example to complement my Summary Slides on Chemical Equilibria. It explains in greater detail, how the concentration-time graphs found on Slides 29, 32 and 36 were derived.

Student: That 鸡蛋 lor...
