1

What effect will the addition of a catalyst have on the position of the equilibrium?

None; the addition of a catalyst only decreases the time taken to reach equilibrium.

2

Dynamic equilibrium =

A chemical equilibrium between a forward reaction and the reverse reaction where the rate of reactions are equal.

3

State Le Chatelier's principle

When a factor is changed that effects the position of the equilibrium, the equilibrium moves to oppose this change.
