Solution: 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) + CO2 (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.

Problem

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.
