Problem Details

Solid carbon and gaseous carbon dioxide are placed in a closed vessel and allowed to come to equilibrium at a high temperature according to this equation.

heat + C (s) + CO(g) ⇌ 2 CO (g)

If the pressure on the system is increased and the temperature kept constant, what will be the result?

a) The amount of CO will increase and that of C and CO 2 will decrease.

b) The amount of CO will decrease and that of C and CO 2 will increase.

c) The amount of each of the three subtances will increase.

d) The amount of each of the three substances will decrease.
