Reactions at Equilibrium

Postby Rebecca Altshuler 1D » Wed Jan 23, 2019 11:44 pm

If we are given a reaction, but we are not told which way it runs, what should we choose as the reactants and products?

I believe that the question will inform the reaction's reactant and/or products. And to know which way the reaction will run, compare Q and K. If Q>K, then the reaction will favor the reactant while if Q<K, then the reaction will favor the product.
