### Re: Rate and equilibrium constant

The equilibrium constant for a one-step reaction is equal to the forward rate constant divided by the reverse rate constant. Rate constant is the rate of conversion of reactants to products, while equilibrium constant is the ratio of concentration of products to concentration of reactants.
