Flashcards in Le Chatelier's Principle Deck (10):
1

What is it the idea of

That if you change conditions of a reversible reaction at equilibrium, system will try to counteract that change (equilibrium will move)

2

What can his principle be used to do

Predict the effect of any changes you make to a reaction system

3

What will happen to equilibrium if you decrease temperature

Move in exothermic direction to produce more heat (get more products for exothermic resction)

4

What will happen to equilibrium if you increase temperature

Move in direction of endothermic to try and decrease it (get more products for endothermic reaction)

5

What does changing pressure only effect

Equilibrium in gases

6

What will equilibrium try to do if you increase pressure and how will it move

Try to decrease pressure by moving in direction where there's fewer gas molecules

7

What will equilibrium try to do if you decrease pressure and how will it move

Will try to increase it by moving here there's more molecules of gas

8

What will the system not be at anymore if you increase concentration of either reactants or products and so what will the system do

Equilibrium
It will respond to bring itself back to equilibrium again

9

What will the system do if you increase the reactants concentration

Try to decrease it by making more products

10

What will the system do if you decrease the concentration of products

Tries to increase it again by reducing amount of reactants
