Determining stability based on K

Postby Katie Frei 1L » Mon Mar 11, 2019 2:15 pm

How can you tell, if given two separate chemical reactions with a different reactant in each, which reactant is more stable based on the equilibrium constant, K?

The equilibrium constants will tell you if reactants or products are favored but will not tell you specifically which reactant is more stable.
