Equilibrium Help!

  1. Jan 7, 2007 #1
    NH3 + H2O <--> NH4+ OH-

    If i add a few drops of HCl to this solution which way would the equilibrium shift... and what are the changes to the system. Thanks.

    Are you familiar with Le Chatelier's principle? What happens to the pH as the reaction proceeds? What happens when you add HCL?

    shift to left, would it not?, the h would bond to the oh and create H2O
