Equilibrium Concentration Hint, finish filling-in the following table, then use the equilibrium concentrations in terms of x in the equilibrium expression and solve for x. Concentration and Le Chatelier's Principle Concentration Le Chatlier's Principle states that if a system at equilibrium is perturbed, it moves in the direction to reduce the stress for the new equilibrium. For example, suppose 0.4 M A is at equilibrium with 0.2 M B for the reaction: A (g) & harr 2B(g). If the concentration of A is increased to 0.5 M, the system is no longer at equilibrium. There is a stress of excess A. So, there is a net reaction of some A to partially reduce its concentration and increase the concentration of B.
