Suppose NaOH is added to the following system when it is at equilibrium.
NH3 (aq) + H2O (l) = NH4 (aq) + OH (aq)
a) in which direction will the reaction shift after the NaOH is added?
b) will this stress increase or decrease the value of the reaction quotient, Q?
C) will the rate of the forward reaction exceed the rate of the reverse reaction before equilibrium is reastablished?
D) when equilibrium is reastablished will the rate of the forward reaction exceed the rate of the reverse reaction?

Can you show me how to attempt this question?

  1. I'll be happy to help. Tell me exactly what you don't understand about the question. Do you know what Q is? Do you know what equilibrium is?
