Textbook Problem

The value of the equilibrium constant K depends on which of the following (more than one answer may be correct)?

a. the initial concentrations of the reactants

b the initial concentrations of the products

c. the temperature of the system

d the nature of the reactants and products Explain.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The correct factors among the given alternatives on which the value of equilibrium constant depends are to be stated.

Concept introduction: Chemical equilibrium is a state of a system in which the rate of the forward reaction and that of the backward reaction is equal. It is affected by various factors such as concentration of reactants or products, temperature and pressure.

To determine: If the value of K depends upon initial concentration of reactants.

The value of K does not depend upon initial concentration of reactants.

Explanation

Explanation

The value of K does not depend upon initial concentration of reactants and products because it is the ratio of concentration of
