Which of the following occurs when a reaction in a solution is at equilibrium and more product is added to the solution?
a. Equilibrium shifts to produce more product
b. The reaction will stop
c. Equilibrium shifts to produce more reactant
d. No change will occur
According to Le Chatelier's principle, the equilibrium in the system shifts in the direction that counteracts the stress. Therefore, adding more product will shift the equilibrium to produce more reactant.
