Which way should the following equilibrium shift when NaHSO4 is added and why?

HSO4-(aq) + H20 (I) = H30^+(aq) + O4^2-

Which way does it shift and why?

Answer:
Your last product should be SO4(2-).

If you add a reactant, it should shift the reaction toward the right. Look -- you've got H(+) on the right, and you're dumping more weak acid in solution. You'd expect the solution to become more acidic, right? And so it is.
