The value of the equilibrium constant, K, is dependent on which of the following? (There may be more than one answer.)

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.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The factors or changes on which the value of equilibrium constant K is dependent are to be stated.

Concept Introduction:

The equilibrium constant is a parameter which describes the relationship between concentration of the reactants and the products at equilibrium stage. Equilibrium constant of a reaction is expressed by the ratio of concentration of product species raised to the power of their stoichiometric coefficients to the concentration of reactant species raised to the power of their stoichiometric coefficients.

According to the Le Chatelier’s principle the change in concentration, volume, pressure and temperature affects the equilibrium constant of the reaction.

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

(c) The given option is correct because the equilibrium constant is affected by the change in the temperature. In endothermic reaction, the decrease in temperature will shift the equilibrium in the forward direction...
