Give the result of the sudden increase in the concentration of O2 in this reaction 2SO2 (g) <-------> 2SO2 (g) + O2 (g)

Home >> Practice Problems

The O2 in this reaction is a product so, if the concentration of the product is increasing the reaction will proceed towards the left in order to consume the additional product so that more reactant will form .


With the increase in the concemtration of the product O2 , the reaction will shift in the direction that creates more reactant,so in this case, to the left and also the concentration of ther product will decrease .
