Intermediate Values of K

Postby Helen Mejia 1I » Sat Jan 12, 2019 6:20 pm

Can someone explain why intermediate values of K result to neither the products or reactants are not strongly favored at equilibrium?

I assume intermediate values are comparable to reactions with a k value of 1. When k is close to one, such as the intermediate values, the ratio of products to reactants is nearly identical. This would imply that the reaction doesn't favor either the forward reaction or the reverse reaction.
