Answer ( 1 )

  1. Look carefully at the reaction. The heat is on the product side and hence heat is released during the reaction so it is an exothermic reaction.

    Now from Le-Chatlier Principle, in an exothermic reaction, increasing the temperature favors backward reaction and hence reaction will shift backward or favor formation of reactant.
