11.1 Homework

"If one starts with a higher pressure of reactant, the equilibrium constant will be larger."
Why is this false? I thought K=[Products]/[Reactants]

The equilibrium constant does not change with a change in pressure

Simply changing the concentration of the reactants or products will not change the equilibrium constant. If you add more reactant, then the reaction will shift to the right. If you add more product, then the reaction will shift to the left. In the end (after you wait a while for the reaction to reach equilibrium again), the concentration of reactants and products will both be higher. If you do the math, you will get the same equilibrium constant as before
