Step 1

The equilibrium constant for a given chemical reaction can be defined as the reaction quotient of that reaction at equilibrium and it can be sued to find out the concentrations of each of the components of a reversible reaction at equilibrium. The mathematical relation between the equilibrium constant and the rate of forward and backward reaction is as follows: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseК, K =-** К, K is the equilibrium constant in terms of concentration K, is the rate constant for forward reaction K is the rate constant for backward reaction fullscreen
Step 2

In the given problem, the rate of the forward reaction is given to be 5.0×106 dm3 mol-1s-1.

The rate of the backward reaction is given to be 2.0&t...
