Catalysts: Catalyst affects rate of reaction. Does not affect equilibrium constant or position of
equilibrium. Catalysts speed up both forward and reverse reactions in equilibrium equally.
Equilibrium is reached quicker with catalysts.
Yield/ position of equilibrium is difficult to determine when two things changes as do not know
the relative effect of two opposing factors- pressure/ conc/ temp changes.
When both reactant and product changed in pressure/ conc. If powers of top and bottom are
the same, Kc does not change, no equilibrium shifts and equilibrium conc stays the same.
