Todetermine how given equilibrium quantitieswill be affected by theinitial amount of X(g)placed in the container at constant temperature.
Reaction: 2X(g)⇌Y(g) + Z(s)
According toLe Chatelier’s Principle, if a system (chemical reaction) is at equilibrium and we disturb it, then thesystem will readjust to maintain its equilibrium state.
Changes in reactant concentration:
↑ reactants → shifts equilibrium to right→ to form more products (minimize excess reactant)↓reactants→ shifts equilibrium toleft → to form more reactants (replenish depleted reactant)

A generic gas, X, is placed in a sealed glass jar and decomposes to from gaseous Y and solid Z.
2X(g) ⇌ Y(g) + Z(s)
How are these equilibrium quantities affected by the initial amount of X(g) placed in the container? Assume constant temperature.
mass of Z at equilibrium
total pressure at equilibrium
