Problem: Consider the following system as equilibrium PbI2(s) ⇌ Pb2+(aq) + 2I-(aq)How will adding more PbI2 shift the equilibrium?How will removing some Pb2+ shift the equilibrium?

FREE Expert Solution

 PbI2(s) ⇌ Pb2+(aq) + 2I-(aq)


adding more PbI2:

• notice that PbI2 is a solid

• according to Le Chatelier’s Principle, the addition of a solid reactant or product would have no effect on the equilibrium

no shift
