Solution: At 500oC, the Kp for the below reaction is 1.45 x10 -5. When 75 atm N2, 35 atm H2, and 5 atm of NH3 are added to a container and heated to 500 oC, in which direction does the reaction proceed? N2 (g) + 3 H2 (g) ⇌ 2 NH3 (g) A. The reaction proceeds to the right towards products until  Qp=Kp B. The reaction proceeds to the left towards reactants until  Qp=Kp C. The reaction proceeds to the right towards products until  Qp>Kp D. The reaction proceeds to the left towards reactants until  Qp<Kp
