Cyclohexane (C6H12) undergoes a molecular rearrangement in the presence of AlCl3 to form methylcyclopentane (MCP) according to the equation: C6H12⇌MCP
If Kc = 0.143 at 25°C for this reaction, predict the direction the reaction will shift if the initial concentrations of C6H12 and MCP are 0.200 M and 0.100 M, respectively. The system
A) is already at equilibrium.
B) will shift left.
C) is not at equilibrium and will remain in an unequilibrated state.
D) will shift right.
