  1. A + B + heat = C
    Keq = (C)/(A)(B)
    For endothermic reactions increased T will mean the rxn shifts to the right which makes C larger, A and B smaller so K is larger. For exothermic rxns
    A + B = C + heat
    K = (C)/(A)(B)
    For increase in T rxn shifts to left, C becomes smaller, A and B larger so K decreases.
