Consider the following reactions at some temperature:
2NOCl( g) ⇌ 2NO( g) + Cl2( g) K = 1.6 × 1025
2NO( g) ⇌ N2( g) + O2( g) K = 1 × 1031
For each reaction some quantities of the reactants were placed in separate containers and allowed to come to equilibrium. Describe the relative amounts of reactants and products that are present at equilibrium. At equilibrium, which is faster, the forward or reverse reaction in each case?
