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

    Its been awhile, but here's my analogy:

    Endothermic is a rxn that absorbs energy in the form of heat. Here, the volume is increasing, and assuming the pressure remains constant, the temperature will go up (by PV ~ T). My guess would be it will shift to the right (by Le Chateliers Principle).

    The reaction will shift from left to maximum suitable. Doubling the quantity of the vessel has decreased the rigidity, so the equilibrium place will shift interior the direction of extra molecules of gasoline which will carry the rigidity up back (although to no longer its previous value)
