What to do if R>P for two equations

Postby ursulavictorino1K » Tue Mar 17, 2020 12:33 am

If 2 equations have R>P, how can tou tell which one is mote favorable to the right?

You should calculate Q and K and if Q < K then the reaction is product favored and will shift to the right

This is correct you would look at the two reactions individually, and determine Q's value relative to K

You can tell by see which one has least gas molecules on right. This makes the reaction more favorable toward the reactants.

Find both the K and Q values, and see which one is larger. For Q>K, the reactants are favored and the reaction will shift to the left, for Q<K, products are favored, and the reaction will proceed to the right.
