Colourless N2O4 is in equilibrium with brown NO2 according to the following equation.

N2O4 <=> 2NO2

If the mixture is in a syringe and compressed, state what will be observed and explain the observations using Le Chatelier's Principle.


Compressing the syring implies that pressure is increased. Thus equilibrium will shift to side with less number of moles that is to left hand side. Mixture will turn paler and paler due to formation of colourless N2O4
