# What does a very large Keq indicate?

Jul 11, 2016

That the given equilibrium lies strongly to the right, i.e. towards the products.

#### Explanation:

For the reaction,
$A + B r i g h t \le f t h a r p \infty n s C + D$
We may write the equilibrium as,
${K}_{e q} = \frac{\left[C\right] \left[D\right]}{\left[A\right] \left[B\right]}$

Clearly, if ${K}_{e q}$ is large, the equilibrium lies strongly to the right. Is the consistent with the arithmetic?
