The Hydrolysis of Sucrose Depicted Below Has K = 1.4
The hydrolysis of sucrose depicted below has K = 1.4 × 105. Which of the following is a reasonable assumption about this reaction once equilibrium is established? sucrose + H2O glucose + fructose
A)The equilibrium mixture contains equal amounts of sucrose, glucose, and fructose.
B)The equilibrium mixture contains mostly glucose and fructose.
C)The equilibrium mixture contains mostly sucrose.
D)The equilibrium shifts to the left due to the high value for K.
Which statement concerning the reversible reaction 2 NO2(g) N2O4(g)is true?
A)NO2 is the product of the forward reaction.
B)The reverse reaction produces N2O4.
C)At the start of the reaction, the forward and reverse reaction rates are equal.
D)As the forward reaction progresses and more N2O4 is formed, the reverse reaction rate increases.
One step in the metabolism of glucose is depicted below. Which statement best describes how the equilibrium system would respond if the amount of dihydroxyacetone phosphate is decreased?
A)The system would shift to the left, consuming more dihydroxyacetone phosphate.
B)The system would shift to the right, producing more dihydroxyacetone phosphate and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate.
C)The system would shift to the left, producing more fructose 1, 6-bisphosphate.
D)The system would shift to the right, consuming some glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate and producing more dihydroxyacetone phosphate.
