Problem

 The next three questions refer to the following exothermic gas phase process at equilibrium:

2SO2(g) + O2(g) ⟺ 2SO3(g)

 

Predict  what will happen when the temperature is raised.

a) equilibrium will shift to the left and more O 2 will be formed

b) equilibrium will shift to the right and more SO 3 will be formed

c) there will be no change in the position of the equilibrium

d) more information is needed to answer this question

e) this is an exothermic reaction so it is not possible to raise the temperature.

Predict what will happen when more O 2 is added.

a) equilibrium will shift to the left and more O 2 will be formed

b) equilibrium will shift to the right and more SO 3 will be formed

c) there will be no change in the position of the equilibrium

d) more information is needed to answer this question

e) it is not possible to add more O 2 to this reaction

Predict what will happen when some Ar gas is introduced at constant volume (pressure increased).

a) equilibrium will shift to the left and more O 2 will be formed

b) equilibrium will shift to the right and more SO will be formed

c) there will be no change in the position of the equilibrium

d) more information is needed to answer this question

e) it is not possible to add AR gas to this equilibrum
