For the endothermic reaction CaCO 3 (s) <----> CaO(s) + CO 2 (g) Le Chatelier's principle predicts that ................ will result in an increase in the number of moles of C O 2 .

a. increasing the temperature

b. decreasing the temperature

c. increasing the pressure

d. removing some of the C a C O 3 ( s )

e. none of the above

Le Chatlier's Principle :

Le Chatlier's principle state that when dynamic equilibrium is disturbed, the system will move in such a way that to release the stress. The system is disturbed by many ways such as changing pressure, changing temperature and changing the volume.
