    a-There will be a shift toward the reactants and Keq will increase. b-There will be a shift toward the reactants and Keq will decrease. c-There will not be a shift and Keq will remain the same. d-There will be a shift toward the products and Keq will decrease. e-There will be a shift toward the products and Keq will increase.

    @bransonsmommy do you know what an endothermic and exothermic reaction is?

    doesnt it have to do with heat? one will hold it better then the other or am i thinking of something else lol

    let me explain Endothermic heat is on the reactant side. so in an endothermic reaction heat must be either like absorbed by the surroundings or you need to put in heat by raising temperature. \[A + B + Heat --> C+D\] in an exothermic reaction heat is released, it's on the product side. Exothermic \[A + B --> C + D + Heat \] in chemistry \[\Delta = heat \] @bransonsmommy

    @bransonsmommy we need to think of heat as part of the reactants. so when we increase the temperature of an endothermic reaction that heat will go to the products. so products will be favored. I think this would increase the number of products in respect to reactants. Keq would get bigger.
