K=1

Postby Isabelle Fontanilla 1I » Sun Jan 20, 2019 9:21 pm

If the equilibrium constant is equal to 1, what does it mean? Does it mean that the system is at equilibrium?

When K=1 this means that when equilibrium is reached, the concentration of products and reactants is the same.

Because the equation for the equilibrium constant is K=products/reactants, when K is equal to 1 the amount of products is equal to the amount of reactants at equilibrium.
