L13: Le Chatelier Principle (1888): If a stress is applied to a system at equilibrium, then the system readjusts, if possible, to reduce the stress. Change in rxn conditions: - reactant and/or product concenration/pressure - Temperature effect for exo-/endothermic rxns - Changing volume/pressure of system Le Chatelier's Principle http://www.chm.davidson.edu/java/LeChatelier/LeChatelier.html

Changing reactant pressure: H 2 + I 2 2HI Increase of H 2 pressure takes the system out of equilibrium. System response: Reduce H 2 pressure; how? by converting H 2 to HI Why? To re-establish K

Change of volume of system Use ideal gas law Compress: increase total concentration System response: go in direction that reduces number of particles Expand: decrease total concentration System response: reverse of above 3H 2 + N 2 2NH 3
