Consider the gaseous equilibrium
\[2HI(g) \rightleftharpoons
H_2(g) +I_2(g)\]
the addition of more hydrogen will shift the equilibrium to the left right? If yes I don't get why; because there are two volumes in the products?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The addition of more hydrogen would shift the reaction towards the reactant side, since you;re adding more 'product'.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the gas is at lower energy when there are less moles of gas {ie less pressure the gas pressures are stable when there are as many moles of reactant/products

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you add to the right, some will move to the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the hydrogen would move to the left( reactants)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The basic funda is that, since more hydrogen has been added, the collision frequency between hydrogen and iodine molecules would increase, and hence, the reformation of HI would be get a 'push', and hence the equilibrium 'shifts towards left' a bit!
