(g)
is increased (by compression)?
1.
decreases
correct
2.
remains the same
3.
Unable to determine
4.
increases
Explanation:
Increasing the total pressure on the sys
tem by decreasing its volume will shiFt the
equilibrium toward the side oF the reaction
with Fewer numbers oF moles oF gaseous com
ponents.
IF the total number oF moles oF
gas is the same on the product and reactant
sides oF the balanced chemical equation, then
changing the pressure will have little or no eF
Fect on the equilibrium distribution oF species
present.
The amount and concentration oF
SO
2
will decrease.

The reaction For the synthesis oF ammonia
N
2(g)
+ 3 H
2(g)
→
2 NH
3(g)
is exothermic.
Increasing the temperature
applied to the system
I) increases the amount oF NH
3
.
II) decreases the amount oF NH
3
.
III) changes the value oF
K

.
IV) does not change the value oF

Explanation:
N

+ 3 H
2(g)
→
2 NH
3(g)
+ Heat
Heat or energy is a product of this reaction.
If temperature of the system is increased then
the reaction will proceed in the reverse di
rection until equilibrium is reestablished (de
creasing NH

).
K
eq
is temperature dependent
so changing the temperature will change
