Hw Problem G2

True or False: the equilibrium concentrations will be the same whether one starts wit pure reactants or pure products.

I think the answer is true because K will always be the same ratio no matter what you start with, as long as the reaction is kept under the same conditions.

It would be true as the equilibrium concentrations would be the same regardless of whether the reaction starts with pure reactants/products since the ratio between the two concentrations is equal to the equilibrium constant, which doesn't change.

It would be true, since K is a constant and the forward and reverse reactions will occur until that constant is reached.

I believe it is true, the reaction will reach equilibrium ending with satisfying the ratio of products to reactants (and/or reactants to products ratio) that makes up the equilibrium constants k and k^-1.

It is true because K is constant. The forward and reverse reactions both occur when equilibrium is reached.
