what would happen on increasing pressure is equilibrium in


At equilibrium, there are one mole of reactant while 2 moles are present on product side. According to Le-Chattier principle the reaction moves to that direction which contains molecular density on changing the pressure. Therefore on increasing the pressure, the reaction moves to backward direction to neutralize the effect of pressure.

Generally ,on increasing the pressure the equillibrium shifts towards the side where there is less no. of moles.

In the given eqn ,less no. of moles is in the reactants side. Hence the equillibrium shifts towards the reactants side.
