Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of equilibrium like a seesaw that has to be kept in balance. If you overload one side, mass must \(shift\) \(away\) from the excess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@JFraser So the equilibrium of the system will be upset?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it will be, and what direction will it move in, if the reactants are upset?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the reactants are "too heavy". in order to restore the balance, where does the mass move to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The side with less reactants?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the mass on the left is too large. to restore balance, the mass must move to the products
