High steam feed rate could increase methane conversion according to Le Chatelier's principle.
Finally, I use Le Chatelier's Principle (Last & Slade, 2007) and the theory of interest convergence (Bell, 1980, 2004; Driver, 2011; Milner, 2008) to interpret the data and show how acceptance or denial of the recommendations was directly related to the interest and benefit of the dominant group's desire to maintain equilibrium.
The three concepts chosen were Le Chatelier's Principle (and dynamic chemical equilibria more broadly), Intermolecular Forces (and other interparticle forces) and Thermochemistry.

Deicing with salt, which helps to depress the freezing point of the solvent (water) per Le Chatelier's Principle, usually works well down to a temperature of minus 18 degrees C.
And, in the period 1882 to 1905, Henri Le Chatelier opened the door to use of the potential compound composition as control items (Ref.
as something that performs and responds more like a stressed ecosystem, something full of non-linear change." He wields analogies of sudden change throughout, but students of chemistry may remember Le Chatelier's principle: if a chemical system is changed (say, by increasing the temperature), the system responds so as to counteract the effect of the change (by absorbing heat).
According to Le Chatelier's principle, any phenomenon (such as phase transition, chemical reaction, etc.) accompanied by a decrease in volume is enhanced by pressure.
As Table 2 indicates, the estimated long-run direct price elasticities are also higher in absolute value than the corresponding short-run elasticity estimates, as the Le Chatelier principle would require.
Nevertheless, because of its technological superiority (based on the creation, in 1887, of a large central laboratory managed by Henry Le Chatelier), the Lafarge House survived the 1930s economic crisis better than most of its French (Poliet et Chausson, Ciments Frangais, Vicat) or foreign (Associated Portland Cement Manufacturers, Holderbank) competitors, but, like them, chose cartelization.
