1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I'm confused with this question... first off isn't heat being removed from the product side since the Kw value is on the product side? If I assume heat is being removed from the product side, wouldn't the reaction shift to the right to restore equilibrium causing the reaction to be exothermic in the forward direction? A lot of people are saying it is endothermic but I am not sure how? wouldn't that mean the heat is being removed from the reactant side? Thanks.
