The answer to 5.61 says that the system being compressed will have little or no effect on the system. I thought that the system being compressed would favor the formation of products bc there are 12 mol on the reactant side but only 7 on the product side. Why is my logic wrong?
You only look at the moles of gas, not the moles of aqueous or liquids or solids. If we look only at the moles of gas, we see that there are only 6 moles of gas on each side, so compressing the system does not shift equilibrium.
