What is KF and KR?
Similarly one may ask, which rate constant is larger KF or Kr?
The reaction C → D has the larger kf, the smaller kr, and the larger Kc (because it has the lowest activation energy for the forward direction). Remember that a large k (rate constant) means that the reaction is fast and therefore the reaction has a low activation energy.
Also, what does a large KF value mean? If K is a large number, it means that the equilibrium concentration of the products is large. In this case, the reaction as written will proceed to the right (resulting in an increase in the concentration of products) If K is a small number, it means that the equilibrium concentration of the reactants is large.
Just so, what is KF in chemistry equilibrium?
Chemical reactions, whether reversible or non-reversible, follow the chemical kinetics. Thus we can gain better understanding of the equilibrium constant K by using the concept of chemical kinetics. Let kf be the rate of forward reaction and kr be the rate of reverse reaction as shown below.
What is KF in solubility?
Many metal sulfides are insoluble in water, but dissolve in acidic solutions. Complex Ion Formation, or stability constant, Kf, of a complex ion is the equilibrium constant for the formation of the complex ion from the aqueous metal ion and the ligands.
