Chemistry: Equilbrium

How does adding NH3 to the reaction below affect the equilibrium of the reaction?

N2(g) + 3H2(g) <=> 2NH3(g)

Increasing the amount of NH3 will make Q larger than K. A net reaction occurs in the direction to increase NH3, or the forward reaction.

Increasing the amount of NH3 will make Q larger than K. A net reaction occurs in the direction to reduce NH3, or the reverse reaction.

Increasing the amount of NH3 will make Q smaller than K. A net reaction occurs in the direction to increase NH3, or the forward reaction.

Increasing the amount of NH3 will make Q smaller than K. A net reaction occurs in the direction to reduce NH3, or the reverse reaction.

  1. Le Chatelier's Principle says in very unsophisticated terms that if we do something to a system at equilibrium that the equilibrium will shift so as to undo what we did to it.
    So if you increase NH3 the reaction will shift so as to reduce the NH3 concn which means it will move to the left. 1 and 3 move it to the left with the difference being in whether Q is larger or smaller. Will Q be larger or smaller.?
