    You may want to elaborate on your questions. Example, are you referring to chemical reactions? Just to give you a hint, it is a good idea to describe how you would answer the questions or what you don't understand about them. Then we can help steer you in the right direction. :wink:

    Going further upon what Ouabache has said, the answer to the first question depends on what the [itex]\Delta H[/itex] of the system is. It is not possible to say that this will happen to the forward reaction because you do not know if it is exothermic or endothermic.

    Am I to assume that this is a question related to dynamic equilibrium???
