Effect of change in temperature

Postby Nikhil_Madan_3C » Wed Nov 16, 2016 5:48 pm

According to the course reader if a reaction requires heat (endothermic) while forming a product then heating will favor P formation.
Does this mean that the equilibria will shift to the right because there would be more products at equilibrium or that the equilibria would shift to the left because there are more products so more reactants would have to be made?

I believe that the equilibria would shift to the right as the reaction is endothermic, therefore requiring heat in the reaction to produce the products.
