• # question_answer Following reaction occurs in a Blast Furnace: $F{{e}_{2}}{{O}_{3}}(s)+3CO(g)\rightleftharpoons 2Fe(l)+3C{{O}_{2}}(g)$ Use Le Chatelier's principle to predict the direction of reaction when equilibrium mixture is disturbed by (a) adding $F{{e}_{2}}{{O}_{3}}$  (b) removing $C{{O}_{2}}$  (c) removing CO.

Answer:

(a) On adding $F{{e}_{2}}{{O}_{3}}\,(s)$, the equilibrium will remain unaffected. (b) By removing $C{{O}_{2}}(g)$, the equilibrium will be shifted in the forward direction (c) By removing $CO(g)$, the equilibrium will be shifted in the backward direction.
