When NaNO3 (s) is heated in closed vessel, oxygen is liberated and NaNO2 (s) is left behind. At equilibrium? Among options one is addition of NaNO3 (s) favors forward direction but this option isn't given correct. Correct option is increasing pressure favours reverse direction. Pls explain why isn't that option correct.
Increasing pressure favour the reverse reaction [Increasing pressure favour the reaction where less no of moles ] Increasing temp. Favour forward reaction because this reaction is decomposition reaction. As more as temp increase more NaNO3 decomposes and increase the conc. Of product
