### K reverse and forward

Can someone explain to me how the Reverse and forward K are related. I was told today that forward is not always 1/reverse, similar to how we learned during equilibrium. Can someone clarify this please?

### Re: K reverse and forward

The equilibrium constant K is equal to the ratio of the rate of the forward reaction to the rate of the reverse reaction.At equilibrium, the rate of forward and reverse reactions are equal
