For the reaction, 2SO2(g) + O2(g) �¨ 2SO3(g) + heat, at equilibrium, what will be the effect on the net amount of SO3 present if the temperature of the container is increased?

A) The concentration of SO3 decreases.

B) The concentration of SO3 increases.

C) The concentration of SO3 remains the same.

D) This question cannot be answered without knowing the value of Keq.

any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You So Much!!!

  1. Increasing T will make the reaction shift to the left; therefore, the amount of SO3 will decrease. BUT you need to be able to do these by yourself. What is confusing you about Le Chatelier's Principle?
