Problem 13Q

What does a small equilibrium constant tell you about a reaction? A large equilibrium constant?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 13Q:

The equilibrium constant, K, is used to find the concentrations of each component of a reversible reaction at equilibrium.

Let us consider a reaction

aA +bB --------> cC +dD

K = (aC)c(aD)d/ (aA)a (aB)b

Therefore,

The magnitude of the equilibrium constant, K, indicates the extent to which a reaction will proceed.

When the equilibrium constant, K, is a large number, it indicates  that the equilibrium concentration of the products is large. Thus,...
