Which of the following can be concluded from the chemical equilibrium constant?
Correct Answer: B.the equilibrium mixture has more reactants than products
The chemical equilibrium constant is calculated by dividing the concentration of the products by the concentration of the reactants at equilibrium. The magnitude of the chemical equilibrium constant can shed light on the composition of the mixture at equilibrium. Since the equilibrium constant given in the question is small, the equilibrium mixture would contain more reactants than products. If the equilibrium constant were larger than 1, this would indicate that the equilibrium mixture was made up of more products than reactants. Note: the chemical equilibrium constant is not an indicator of the rate of the reaction, only the concentrations of the equilibrium mixture.
The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is a test administered by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The test is designed to test your knowledge in three specific sections; physical sciences such as physics and general chemistry, biological sciences and organic chemistry, and verbal reasoning.
How Should I Study?
The MCAT is a rigorous exam that requires months of planning in order to achieve a great score. It is recommended that you begin your study schedule 3 months prior to your exam date. In addition to answering our practice MCAT questions each day, read this article regarding studying for the MCAT from home.
Register for the MCAT.
The first question many people ask is, “when should I take the MCAT?” The general guideline is to take the MCAT the year before you plan to enter medical school. For example, the class of 2018 should take the MCAT sometime before or during the spring/summer of 2013. Your basic science coursework should be complete by this point.
