What are we calculating for the reverse reaction?

For reverse reactions, it is important to calculate the K value, which k=[P]/[R].

if you mean in terms of K then the reverse reaction would be 1/{K} from the K of the forward reaction. If you mean when solving enthalpy, its H times -1

A reverse reaction would be the inverse of the equilibrium constant for the forward reaction.

The reverse reactions is simply the inverse of the forward reaction, which for constant K would be p/r

Calculating K for reverse reactions involves taking the inverse of K for the forward reaction (1/K)

The reverse reaction is the inverse. so it would would 1/k

Reverse reaction is 1/K, inverse relationship
