Chem Equilibrium Module Question #27 & #29?

Postby Adriana Rangel 1A » Sat Nov 25, 2017 4:10 pm

27. For a reaction with K > 1 what do we know?
I put

B. The initial concentration of product(s) is higher than the initial concentration of reactant(s).

I understand that K>1 means that the reaction lies to the right because then the initial concentration of products must be greater than initial concentration of reactants and thus the equation lies to the right. So why did I miss this question ? Because isn't K>1 means that the concentration of products (numerator) is greater than reactants (denominator)?

I think K is the constant representing the ratio of concentration of products and reactants at equilibrium, but now initial concentrations.
For any other circumstances, we use Q to represent the ratio.
