NaCl(s) + H2O(l) <--> Na(aq) + Cl(aq)

If you added chloride ions to the above equilibrium, what would happen to the concentration of the products, and the concentration of the reactants? I know the equilibrium would shift to the left, and I am guessing the concentration of the products will be greater than the reactants before equilibrium is reached?

    The answers to your question are yes and yes. I suppose my first question is to ask how you propose to add chloride? Will you add more sodium chloride to add chloride? Too much sodium chloride and you have a saturated solution.

    I think the question was asking for the Cl (aq) ions

  • chemistry -

    And my question is, "How do you add Cl^-?" You can't. You must add it with some cation.

    that makes sense, thanks for your help
