WHY DOES MY CAR IDLE HARD WHEN THE A/C IS TURNED ON?

2006 Scion tC • 76,600 miles

The car runs fine but when I am stopped with the air conditioning on my car idles to where it is shaking.

Seems to be, a/c works fine and engine stays cool how else would I be able to tell?

Does the engine rpms bob around or does the car just vibrate?
