Coal, which is primarily carbon, can be converted to natural gas, primarily CH 4, by the exothermic reaction:
C(s) + 2H2(g) ⇌ CH4(g)
Which change will favor CH4 at equilibrium?
a. adding more C to the reaction mixture
b. adding more H2 to the reaction mixture
c. raising the temperature of the reaction mixture
d. lowering the volume of the reaction mixture
e. adding a catalyst to the reaction mixture
f. adding neon gas to the reaction mixture
