• Increasing or decreasing the temperature of a system at equilibrium is also a stress to the system.
  • For the Haber-Bosch process, an increase in temperature favors the reverse reaction.
  • An increase in the temperature in a system favors the direction of the reaction that absorbs heat, the endothermic direction.
  • A change in temperature shifts the equilibrium and the value either increases or decreases.
  • The effect of temperature on thedirection of an equilibrium reaction is described.
  • The equation for the Habers process is written again below, as a thermochemical equation.
