· The effect of changes on the equilibrium can be predicted using the Le Chatelier’s principle.
· Le Chatelier’s principle states that: “If a stress is applied to a system at equilibrium, the system will respond in such a way as to relieve the stress and restore a new equilibrium under a new set of condit ions”.
· Note sequence of events: 1. Stress applied 2. Equilibrium system response (equilibrium shift) 3. New equilibrium
· Stress is a change in any of the fo llowing: A) Concentration of Reactants or Products B) Pressure C) Temperature A) Effect of Concentration Change on Equilibrium (Adding or Removing Reactants or Products) Consider: A + Stress: B ¾¾
