Q vs. K

Postby Soumya Ravichandran 4H » Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:33 pm

We know that when Q<K products are favored and reactants are favored when Q>K. What happens when Q=K?

When Q=K, it means that the reaction is at equilibrium and there is no shift to either the reactants or products.

When Q=K, the reaction is in equilibrium and there is no shift.

This link goes into more detail about the relationships between K and Q.
