Le Chatelier's principle

If there is a change in a system in which there is a dynamic equilibrium then the equilibrium's position moves to oppose the change.

For example, in terms of changing concentration, if you have a reaction A + B <--> C + D (a reversible reaction) and you increase [A] then the equilibrium's position moves to the right as to oppose the change[1].
