We are asked to predict whether the reaction will shift left, shift right, or remain unchanged after each disturbance.


2 BrNO(g) ⇌ 2 NO(g) + Br2(g)


Analyze each: 

a. NO is added to the reaction mixture.

  • NO is a product
  • When we remove reactants or add products the chemical reaction will shift in the reverse direction to re-establish equilibrium.


The reaction shifts to the left.
