Le Chatelier's Principle

Equilibrium reactions are able to reach a steady state of products and reactants, but what happens when this careful balance is disturbed? With the help of this instructional video, young chemists learn to apply Le Chatelier's principle to predict how chemical equilibriums shift when concentration, temperature, and volume are changed.

Instructional Ideas

  • Add this video to a high school chemistry lesson on equilibrium reactions and Le Chatelier's principle
  • Create a worksheet containing the practice problems in the video so students can follow along as they watch
  • Assign this video as homework in your flipped science classroom
Pros

  • Provides a four-step process for solving problems involving Le Chatelier's principle
  • Six example problems are presented and solved in the video to reinforce student learning
  • Clear explanations are offered for the different ways reactions shift in response to changes to environmental conditions
Cons

  • Presenter's voice and tone may not capture the engagement of all learners
