Unformatted text preview: temperature, Le Chatelier’s principle dictates that added heat to a chemical equilibrium will shift the equilibrium away from the side that produces heat. In other words, it will accommodate the added heat by producing less heat. In a change of substance (i.e. adding more of a product or more of a reactant), the principle dictates that the equilibrium will shift away from the side that the added substance is on. That is to say that the equilibrium will shift to accommodate the additional substance by creating less of that. When pressure is changed, the equilibrium also shifts. An increase in pressure would cause the reaction to shift to the side with fewer moles of gas....
