For the endothermic reaction N2O4(g) 2NO2(g) what is the effect of doubling the volume of the reaction vessel

the reaction will shift left to right

the reaction will shift right to left

there will be no further reaction

what happens depends on the temperature

    According to Lechatliers principle: When a stress is placed on a system, the systems equilibrium will shift to the right or the left to reduce the effect of the stress. If you double the concentration you increase the number of moles of the NO2 gas therefore it will shift to the left.

    The reaction will shift from left to right. Doubling the volume of the vessel has reduced the pressure, so the equilibrium position will shift in the direction of more molecules of gas which will bring the pressure up again (although not to its previous value)

    The reaction will shift to the right (in favor of 2NO2) because an increasing volume on any gaseous system will favor the side with the greater number of moles of gas.

    as vol increases , pressure decreases . hense reaction will shift in forward direction .

    as temp increases an endothermic reaction shifts in forward direction.
