"Increasing the pressure of a gas is the equivalent of increasing the concentration of a solution. So, if we increase the pressure on the above system, the position of the equilibrium will move so as to reduce the pressure. The equilibrium will move to the right, because there are fewer molecules on the right-hand side of the equation, and fewer molecules mean lower pressure."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
