Hi everyone!

one of topscore qusetion was

If Keq>1, ..

The answer shows [product] > [reactant]

but i think it is not necessary true.

let say A <-> 3B

Keq = ^3/[A]

let say Keq is 2 >1 and [product](B) is 2

2= 8/A

A is 4 which means [reactant] can be larger than [product]

right? am i missing something here or did i just make the simple question complex?:confused:

I feel that you're making a simple straight forward question unnecessarily complex. its # of moles. not size of the products and reactants.

So A is 4, but B is still 8. B is still bigger. I think you are just overthinking it.
