Equilibrium Constant

Postby Tracy Tolentino_2E » Mon Jan 06, 2020 4:47 pm

What does the value of K supposed to tell us about the reaction? And what does strongly favor mean within equilibrium?

K tells you the proportion of products to reactants present in the reaction and whether there are more products or reactants. When a certain reaction is strongly favored, it means that the K value is greater than 1000.

K also tells us which of the products or reactants is more stable. If K is large, then the products are favored, which means they are more stable. If K is small, then the reactants are favored, meaning that they are more stable.

What's the definition of a "large" K? What value of K is considered large and what value of K is considered small?

I think a large K is considered to be greater than 10^3 and a small K is considered to be less than 10^-3
