Discuss in Terms of Concentration

Extend equilibrium to a more general discussion of concentration. If you increase the amount of one reactant, or if you compress the system - all of those things could be considered just as changes of concentration. Rather than splitting them up into different categories of changes of concentration. If you change the concentration of one or more species, there’s a net reaction in the direction that relieves that change. It’s that holistic approach to understanding concentration. If students understand concentration as concentration of gases and liquids and solvents in solutions, it will go a long to helping them understand equilibrium.
