Can some please explain how to apply Le Chatelier's Principle?

Le Chatelier’s Principle is applied to equilibrium reactions in trying to determine the direction in which a reaction will go when changes are introduced to the system.

Le Chatelier’s principle states that "when a stress is applied to a system in dynamic equilibrium, the equilibrium tends to adjust to minimize the effect of the stress" (textbook). So if any changes were to be made to a reaction like increasing or decreasing the concentration, pressure, etc. the system will respond to return the reaction to equilibrium. Ex. of the concentration of a reactant was increased, the system will shift towards the right towards the formation of products.

Le Chatelier's principle simply states that chemical reactions adjust so as to minimize the effect of changes. For instance, if more reactant is added, more product will form to account for this change.
