Concentration of oxygen change the concentrations of carbon dioxide

  1. Sep 22, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    6CO2 + 6 H2O → C6H12O6 + 6 O2

    Now suppose the above reaction is allowed to proceed in both directions, and has reached
    equilibrium. How would increasing the concentration of oxygen change the concentrations of
    carbon dioxide and sugar?


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Would the concentration of oxygen in both the sugar and carbon dioxide increase since oxygen is essential to both of them? I have trouble with equilibrium and problems like this, any help or hints are greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Study La Chatelier's principle.
