Shifting K with changes in volume

Postby 405112316 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 11:32 am

So I know that the reaction will shift toward the side with less moles of gas if the volume is getting smaller/pressure is getting bigger. But what happens if the volume is getting bigger and the pressure is getting smaller? Will the reaction shift to the side with more moles of gas?

Yes, less pressure (greater volume) will cause shift to side with more gas moles

Yes it will shift to the sides with more moles due to more volume and less pressure

If the volume increases, the pressure with decrease and it will shift to the side with more moles. If the volume decreases, the pressure will increase and there will be a shift to the side with less moles.
