. In general terms. what does the equilibrium constant for a reaction represent? What is the algebraic form of the equilibrium constant for a typical reaction? What do square brackets indicate when we write an equilibrium constant?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The equilibrium constant for a reaction is to be defined. The algebraic form of the equilibrium constant for a typical reaction is to be stated. The quantity indicated by the square brackets written for equilibrium constant expression is to be explained.

Concept Introduction:

The equilibrium state of a chemical reaction is the state at which the rate of reaction going into the forward direction becomes equal to the rate of reaction going into the backward direction. A general equilibrium reaction is represented as,

AB+C.

Explanation

The equilibrium constant of a reaction is expressed as the ratio of concentration of products and reactants each raised to the power of their stoichiometric coefficients. The equilibrium constant of a reaction is calculated when the rate of forward reaction becomes equal to rate of backward reaction. A typical equilibrium reaction is represented as,

aA+bBcC+dD

The algebraic form of equilibrium constant for the above chemical reaction is expressed as,

K=CcDdAaBb

Where,

  • A represents the equilibrium concentration of reactant A
