### K value

why is K= 1 rare?

### Re: K value

K=1 is rare because K is the ratio of reactants to products. If K was 1, that would mean that there is an equal amount of products to reactants.

### Re: K value

so when k=1, does that mean that there are the same amount of reactants and products????

### Re: K value

K=1 means that the concentration of the products is equal to the concentration of the reactants at equilibrium. It's not impossible, its just not common in everyday chemical reactions.

### Re: K value

K=1 means that AT EQUILIBRIUM the rate at which the forward reaction and backward reaction occur are equal.

This is rare because, in the real world, reaction rates can differ greatly, hence, it's unlikely that they'll just end up at 1.

Because that would indicate that the products and reactants are in the same ratio. Essentially, in the real world, that would be rare.

### Re: K value

if k=1 wouldn't that mean that the reaction is at equilibrium?
