    Which situation would cause the following equilibrium reaction to increase the formation of the reactants? 2SO2 (g) + O2 (g) Two arrows stacked on top of each other. The top arrow points to the right. The bottom arrow points to the left. 2SO3 (g) + Energy increase the temperature decrease the temperature increase the pressure decrease the volume this one was difficult I'm not very sure i was going with the first option maybe :/

    \[2SO_2 + O_2 \rightleftharpoons 2SO_3 + energy\]

    Whenever a system at equilibrium is stressed, it will always move in the direction that \(relieves\) the stress. If you add too much of a reactant, the reaction with shift to make more product and relieve the stress. If you remove one of the reactants, the reaction will move to replace some of it, and shift backwards to restore the balance. Look at each stress and you should see which can one would push the equilibrium backwards

    You want a stress that will push the reaction backwards

    i don't think pressure or volume will push the equilibrium back

    i know i can mark out decrease the temperature because that would cause equilibrium reaction to decrease the formation of the reactants

    2SO2 + O2 ----> 2SO3 + energy @superhelp101 for starters what kind of reaction is this?

    Think in terms of energy

    Is it and endothermic or ectothermic reaction and why?

    endothermic i think

  22. superhelp101

    because energy is released

    wait so its exothermic sorry

    Yep so if I increased temperature think of heat as a product/reactant where do you think the reaction will go to deal with the that extra heat?

    would it be equilibrium?

    so it is the first option?

    So like there's heat on the product side; if I increase temperature I'm adding more heat so there's going to be a shift; so the reaction is going to go back to favor the reactants. Someone on open study explained it so well to me the other day.
