Chemical Equilibrium: Position Shifts and Concentration Changes

Post by George » Thu Mar 09, 2017 10:09 am

Hi there,

My questions are in relation to the following system:

NaOH(s) <> Na (aq) + OH (aq) + energy

When NaCl (or just Na) is added:
i) Does the equilibrium shift to the left still despite the reactants being a solid?
ii) Does the concentration of OH reduce as a result of the equilibrium shifting to the left even though it isn't technically being consumed to form anything (as NaOH is solid)?

Thanks in advance.
