What factors is K dependent on?

The equilibrium constant K is equal to the concentration of products divided by the concentration of reactants of a reaction at equilibrium.

K depends on the concentration of the products and the concentration of the reactants in an equilibrium equation.

In kinetics, K is dependent on temperature and activation energy. You can find this relationship by using the arrhenius equation, which is k=Ae^-Ea/RT.

When K>>>>1 then the products are favored and K in the forward direction is larger than K' in the reverse direction. This occurs in an energy profile with an exothermic reaction. Vice Versa, when K<<<1 then it is in an energy profile that is endothermic.

K is dependent on temperature.

REMEMBER it is not dependent on concentration!

K is dependent on temperature.

K is not dependent on concentration (equilibirum)

The rate constant (k) depends on temperature and activation energy.

K is not dependent on the concentration of the products and reactants. K is only dependent on temperature and activation energy.

K is dependent on temperature and activation energy I believe

In kinetics k is defined by the arrhenius equation, thus the temperature and activation energy.

K is defined as the ratio of products to reactants when a chemical reaction is at equilibrium. K is dependent on temperature and changes in temperature shift K depending on whether the reaction is endothermic or exothermic.
