What is an equilibrium constant?, Chemistry

The ratio of the concentration of the products raised to its stoichiometric coefficient to the concentration of the reactants raised to its stoichiometric coeff.

Mostly, higher the K (eq. constant), the reaction will go on to a greater extent.

Remember, not faster, greater extent, that''s it.

when a rxn takes place ,it occurrs in two direction forward and backward.....Equilibrium constant is ratio of rate of forward rxn and rate of backward rxn.
