The following reaction is at equilibrium:
4NH3 (g) + 3O2 (g) 6H2O (g) + 2N2 (g)
How will the equilibrium shift if:
a) The volume is increased,
b) Helium gas is added
Asked by Topperlearning User | 27th Apr, 2015, 04:12: PM
a) Since the volume is being increased, the pressure is dropping. In response, the equilibrium will shift right to attempt to make more moles of gas and increase the pressure.
b) The equilibrium will not change. To change the gaseous equilibrium, the partial pressures of at least one gas need to be changed. Since He is un-reactive with all of the gases present, the total pressure will change but the partial pressures will not be affected.

- Define Le Chatelier's principle. How does it affect the equilibria.
- How does melting point decrease with increase in pressure for solid- liquid equillibrium . Pls explain using Le chattlier principle
- Im chemistry, what does it mean "the equilibrium state favours products or the reactants ? favored to what?
- What is Le Chatelier's principle?
- What are the factors which affect chemical equilibria?
- How Kc, KP, Qc and ΔGo are related?
- The following reaction is a reversible reaction. The value of Kc for this reaction is 31.4 at 588K. CO(g) + H2O (g) CO2 (g) + H2 (g) If a 10.00L vessel has 2.50 mol CO2 and H2O, and 5.00 mol CO2 and H2 gas at 588K, which way will the reaction proceed ?
- Define and explain the law of chemical equilibrium.
