so when you find q and you see that it is smaller than k then it means that the forward reaction is favored. my question is does that mean that the reaction needs to continue for a period of time before equilibrium is reached?
When Q is smaller than K, it suggests that there is greater concentration of reactants and less concentration of products than suggested at equilibrium. Therefore, the reaction will take a forward direction to lower the concentration of reactants and increase the concentration of products until Q=K.
