For example, if more reactants are added to a system, le chatelier s principle predicts that the reaction will generate more products to offset.
The effects of temperature changes on the position of the equilibrium is also observed. The purpose of this experiment was equilibrium shifts in a system when the concentration of one species changes. The direction of shifts in the equilibrium position led to the formulation of principle of le chatelier. He devised le chatelier s principle, used by chemists and chemical engineers to predict the effect a changing condition has on a system in chemical equilibrium. A salt is produced in the reaction of an acid with a base. In general terms, describe the direction of the equilibrium shift when the concentration of a reactant is increased. In this experiment we will use two separate methods to disturb systems at chemical equilibrium.

Le chatelier s principle explains that an equilibrium reaction will shift to compensate for the addition of one component. Using previous information relating to le chateliers principle, predictions and observations were made on how the stress would have an affect on the direction within which the system would shift to reestablish equilibrium. The le chatelier s principle has very important and wide application in chemical reactions that are both exothermic and endothermic in nature. This also means that once equilibrium is reached, there is less of the stuff on the other side of the equation. Change the temperature of the system acidbase indicators.
