Homework Help: Does adding different solid affect the quilibrium?

  1. Nov 30, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    CoCl4 2-+6H2O --> Co(H2O)62++4Cl-+energy
    If I add silver nitrate, which direction does it shift?
    I think it is no effect, because adding solid does not affect the equilibrium?... Am i right?

    Btw, what happen if i add aqueous to X gas --> Z gas + Y gas, vise verse...
    or gas to x(aq)--->Z aq + Y aq

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Silver nitrate is not being added as a solid. Assume that it is being added as a dissociated species in solution. What effect would the Ag+ ion have on the equilibrium?

    I can't tell what you are asking about your gases but I assume that you are adding water vapor to a mixture of interconverting gases at equilibrium, yes? If the partial pressure of water vapor doesn't appear in the equilibrium expression, will it change the equilibrium?
