If N2(g) + 3 H2(g) --> 2 NH3(g), K = 1.7 x 10^-3 at 600. K and 7.8 x 10^-5 at 700. K, and a gaseous mixture consisting of 2.23 mmol N2 and 6.69 mmol H2 in a 500.-mL container was heated to 600. K and allowed to reach equilibrium. Will more ammonia be formed if that equilibrium mixture is then heated to 700. K?

No, more ammonia would not be formed because the equilibrium constant at the higher temperature (700K) is smaller so the equilibrium would sit to the left, favoring the formation of reactants
