Unformatted text preview: Small K < 1 reactants are "favored" The value for K is large when products dominate the mixture. The value for K is small when the reactants dominate the mixture. The expression for an equilibrium reaction is determined by the coefficients in the balanced equation. added reactants cause an increase in the amount of products. Raising the temperature for an exothermic reaction favors reactants. Raising the temperature for an endothermic reaction favors formation of products. Increasing the pressure favors the side with lass volume. Increasing the concentration of a substance in the equilibrium mixture creates a temporary increase the reaction rate on that side of the equilibrium. 2 H 2 (g)+N 2 (g) N 2 H 4 (g)...
