science - chemistry (Le Chatelier's)

posted by .

How does the concentration of the reactants affect the amount of product obtained? In general, does an increased concentration of reactant give more product? What are the exceptions?

Does it matter if it's exothermic or endothermic? If the reactants/products are in liquid/aqueous state? Anything else that might affect whether the concentration affects the amount of product obtained?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Any other information regarding concentration in Le Chatelier's Principle would also be extremely helpful! Thanks a lot.

    By your question, it is evident you missed the point of Le Chatelier: Reaction dynamics tend to undo a reaction in equilibrium if a reaction condition (temp, pressure, concentration) has been altered.


    This article explains it well, somewhat wordy, but well:
