(a) Decrease in T
(b) increase in T
(c) Decreasing the volume of the reaction vessel
(d) increasing the volume of rxn vessel
(e) adding a catalyst

60) NH4NO3(s) -> N2O(g) + 2H2O(g)

by the way, I saw the explanations for 31 and 54. I'll give up on 31, but for 54, wouldn't increasing the volume cause the equilibrium to shift to the left, making the Keq lower?

31. molality doesn't change with temperature. that's why it's used in freezing point depression and boiling point elevation. it's only based on mass so if the volume of the solution changes bc it evaporates at high temp etc. then the molality is still constant

54. K is only changed by temperature. if you change the volume/concentrations you end up with different concentrations of products and reactants at equilibrium but the same equilibrium constant.
the temp change is kind of like le chateliers principle - think of heat as a product since it's exothermic. to decrease Keq, you want more reactants so you add heat to the product side.

60. hmm i think it's .03 mole sample instead of .003? i used P=nRT/V and n = (.03) + 2(.03) and i set the volume to 1L. not sure about this one but it would come out to 2.95

65. Mg(OH)2 is affected by HCl because the H+ will bond to the OH- to make water and Mg(OH)2 dissociates more to replace the OH- ions. in general weak bases are more soluble when you add strong acids, and weak acids are more soluble when you add strong bases

67. in the equilibrium chart you would set up, Ag changes by +2x and cro4 changes by +x. Ag is squared because of the 2. ksp = (2x)^2 * (x) = 4x^3. solve for x
