Answer:

The time it takes to reach equilibrium is completely unrelated to the size of the equilibrium constant.

Explanation:

The time to reach equilibrium is determined by the activation energy #E_text(a)#, while the value of the equilibrium constant is determined by the enthalpy of reaction #Δ_text(r)H# (more precisely, by the value of #Δ_text(r)G#).

There is no direct relation be these two properties.
