# Consider the reaction A ( g ) + B ( g ) ⇌ C ( g ) + D ( g ) . A friend asks the following: “I know we have been told that if a mixture of A, B, C, and D is at equilibrium and more of A is added, more C and D will form. But how can more C and D form if we do not add more B?” What do you tell your friend?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The given reaction is to be considered. The reason for the formation of more products C and D if no more reactant B is added is to be stated.

Concept introduction: Chemical equilibrium is a state of a system in which the rate of forward and backward reactions is equal. It is affected by various factors such as concentration of reactants or products, temperature, pressure etc.

To determine: The reason for the formation of more products C and D if no more reactant B is added

Explanation

Explanation

The given reaction is,

A(g)+B(g)C(g)+D(g)

If a mixture of A, B, C and D is at equilibrium and more of A is added, more of C and D will form
