Mini-Tutorial Equilibrium Shifts Std 9






Everything shift right everything

this side -------------------------------> this side

decreases increases







everything shift left everything

this side <----------------------------- this side

increases decreases









These shifts are the way we describe what happens when LeChatelier reacts to actions taken on a system that is at equilibrium.




Examples of actions:

Add more O2 to the reaction mixture. Adding a dessicant to the reaction mixture removes H2O (gas).
