Equilibrium and Volume

Postby Bianca Barcelo 4I » Sun Jan 20, 2019 7:15 pm

How does equilibrium change when there are changes in volume?

If there is an increase in volume it will change equilibrium to the left favoring the reactants. If there is a decrease in volume equilibrium will shift to the part of the reaction that has less moles.This happens for gas phase reactions.
