Problem 5G.1b

Postby ELu 1J » Wed Jan 08, 2020 9:08 pm

5G.1 State whether the following statements are true or false. If false, explain why. (b) An equilibrium reaction is not affected by increasing the concentrations of products.

I just wanted to clarify that the statement is saying that the concentration of the products is increased AFTER the reaction has already reached equilibrium? If so, would the following explanation be correct? An increase in the concentration of the product would lead to Q>K and therefore the reaction would be affected, shifting to the left to reach equilibrium again.

I think it does mean that the concentration of products is increased at equilibrium, so yes the reaction would shift to the left to reach equilibrium.
