The Equilibrium Constant is a numerical measure of far a reaction has proceeded before it “stops”
The Reaction Quotient, Q, is the same expression as the Equilibrium Expression, but contains concentrations at any given point.
Comparing Q with K, we can decide in which direction the reaction has yet to proceed – forward or reverse.
