Homework Statement


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?


Homework Equations





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!
