Question

# Indicate whether either an increase or a decrease of pressure obtained by changing the volume would increase the amount of product in each of the following reactions.a. $CO(g) + 2H_2(g) \rightleftharpoons CH_3OH(g)$ b. $2SO_2(g) + O_2(g) \rightleftharpoons 2SO_3(g)$ c. $CO{Cl}_2(g) \rightleftharpoons CO(g) + {Cl}_2(g)$

Solution

Verified
\begin{aligned} & \text{a}\text{. CO}\left( g \right)\text{ + 2}{{\text{H}}_{2}}\left( g \right)\text{ }\xleftrightharpoons{}{} \text{ C}{{\text{H}}_{3}}\text{OH}\left( g \right) \\ & \text{b}\text{. 2S}{{\text{O}}_{2}}\left( g \right)\text{ + }{{\text{O}}_{2}}\left( g \right)\text{ }\xleftrightharpoons{}{} \text{ 2S}{{\text{O}}_{3}}\left( g \right) \\ & \text{c}\text{. COC}{{\text{l}}_{2}}\left( g \right)\text{ }\xleftrightharpoons{}{} \text{ CO}\left( g \right)\ \text{+ C}{{\text{l}}_{2}}\left( g \right) \\ \end{aligned}
