Question 5G.1 part d

Postby Margaret Akey » Wed Jan 09, 2019 9:24 pm

TRUE or FALSE:

(d) if one starts with higher concentrations of reactants, the equilibrium concentrations of the products will be larger


is this true or false, please explain if you can!

This statement is true because the concentration of the reactants over the products at equilibrium should equal the equilibrium constant. The constant for the reaction at equilibrium will not change, therefore, as you increase the concentration of the reactants, the concentration of the products should increase at the same rate so the ratio of the products to reactants should equal the equilibrium constant.
