I have read Le Chateliers principle but am having a little trouble explaining the effect of pressure and temperature on the equilibrium yield of methanol (CH3OH). Can anyone also tell me the effect of the increase of temp will have on the rate of the reaction?
Yield of methanol from what? An increase in T will shift the equilibrium to more products for an endothermic reaction, to fewer products for an exothermic reaction.
It is explained really well in OU S103 book 8 really well
