Book Notes: -Le Chatelier’s principle when a chemical system at equilibrium is disturbed, it reattains equilbrium by undergoing a net reaction that reduces the effect of the disturbance. If the concentration increases, the system reacts to consume some of it If the concentration decreases, the system reacts to produce some of it. The equilibrium position shifts to the right when a component on the left is added. The equilibrium position shifts to the left when a component on the left is removed. EQ P shifts to the right if a reactant is added or a product is removed; reactant increases or product decreases EQ P shifts to the left if a reactant is removed or a product is added: reactant decreases or product increases. Adding an inert has no effect on the equilibrium position. Adding an inert gas does not change the volume so all reactant and product concentrations remain the same. Changing the volume causes a large shift in equilibrium.
