Step 1

a)The given reaction is

Step 2

Equilibrium constant is ratio of concentration of products and reactants. help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose[products] reactants since the value of K, in the question is 78 FESCN2 78= FeSCN 3+ fullscreen
Step 3

b)   Since the value of Kc is 78, it means that the reaction has almost reached completion. If Kc is much greater than 1 then it m...
