what happens to K when you reverse a reaction?

the K of a reverse reaction is the inverse of the forward reaction

When a reaction is reversed, K -> 1/K

The K of a reverse reaction is just the inverse of K (or 1/K)

In a forward reaction, you do products over reactants for the equilibrium equation. For the reverse it is technically reactants over products, so it makes sense that your K would be 1/K for the reverse.

For a reverse reaction the value of K would be 1/K which is the inverse.

for the reverse reaction lets say Kr, Kr=1/K

K reverse : 1/k
K*n : K^n
K*m: K^(1/m)

If you reverse the reaction simply take the reciprocal of the the original K value so 1/K.

The value of K in a reverse reaction is the inverse of the forward reaction. If the value of K in a forward reaction is K, then the equilibrium constant in the reverse reaction is 1/K.

The K of the reverse reaction will be the inverse of the K of the forward reaction
Kreverse = 1/Kforward

A + B -> C
Kforward = [C]/[A][B]
Kreverse = [A][B]/[C]

When you reverse the reaction, you have to invert K. Therefore, for a forward reaction, the equilibrium constant is equal to K. For the reverse reaction, the equilibrium constant is equal to 1/K.

The k for a reversed reaction is 1/k

K is inversed so it becomes 1/K.

K is going to become inverse, so 1/K.
