Simulation of the lifting tube experiment for the chemical equilibrium

After the experimental execution of the lifting tube experiment, the parameters of the experiment can efficiently be varied by a simulation. This model experiment maps a chemical equilibrium between A and B:

The following table compares the parameters of the lifting tube experiment are compared with those of the chemical equilibrium.

Simulation chemisches Gleichgewicht
water amount in cylinder A: V(A) amount of substance A: n(A)
water amount in cylinder B: V(B) amount of substance B: n(B)
cross section area of forward lifting tube: Afor reaction rate forward reaction: kback
cross section area of backwards lifting tube: Aback reaction rate backwards reaction: kback
Afor / Aback kfor / kback = K


Enter the numbers with a decimal point instead of a comma!

The maximum water volume is 100 ml. It is V(B) = 100 ml - V(A):

  V(A) =
