addition of solid into a reaction

Postby davidryan3f » Fri Mar 15, 2019 6:35 pm

If the amount of a solid is added to a reaction that is already at equilibrium, will the reaction shift left or right, or will it remain at equilibrium since the item added was a solid?

The reaction will not shift either way because solids are not included in the equilibrium constant. Thus, adding a solid will not affect the Q value nor the reaction.
