A container is charged with hydrogen, nitrogen, and ammonia gases at 120°C and the system was allowed to reach equilibrium. What will happen if the volume of the container is increased at constant temperature? 3H2(g) + N2(g) 2 NH3(g)
According to Le Chatelier's Principle, an increase in pressure will shift the equilibrium to the side with fewer mols. That will be the side with NH3; therefore, additional N2 will react with additional H2 to form additional NH3.
