N2+3H2<->2NH3

Postby ng1D » Fri Jan 10, 2020 2:08 pm

What happens if N2 is increased, NH3 is increased, or H2 decreased? What does it mean when they go to the left or right?

Yep! you are correct on both. Both NH3 is increased and H2 decreased. Going left or right simply means where the rxn shifts in response to adding products or reactants. In this case, the rxn goes right.

The reaction favors equilibrium so affecting one side will affect the other side of the reaction, and rxn will proceed to oppose/resist change.

When a reaction goes right, it will begin producing more net product. One case that this will happen in this example is when reactant is added (N2 is increased)

When N2 is increased the reaction will shift to the right and when NH3 is increased the reaction will shift to the left. When H2 is decreased, the reaction will also shift to the left. Going to the left or right just means that either the products (right) or reactants (left) are favored in order to restore equilibrium.

When the reaction goes left or right it simply means that a change on one side forces the reaction to make up for that change and shifts to the appropriate side.
