Using the general properties of equilibrium constantsAt a certain temperature, the equilibrium constantfor the following reaction is:Use this information to complete the following table.You can solve this problem by using the general properties ofequilibrium constantsThe size oftells you whether reactants or products dominate at equilibrium.Ifis large, for example greater than, thenproductsdominate theequilibriumcomposition. Ifis small, for example smaller than,reactantsdominate. Ifmoderate, for example in the range ofto, then neither reactants nor productswill dominate.:is
In this caseis large, so products will dominate. That is, at equilibrium there will bevery littleand.for the reverse reaction equals the inverse offor the forward reaction.You can see this by comparing the equilibrium constantexpressions:Here's the forward reaction and its equilibrium
