I have this question about the kinetics of a reaction reaching equilibria and it asks to work out Kf.
Kf= forward reaction constant
Kb= backward reaction constant
Ke= rate constant at equilibrium = 0.0235
Ke = Kf + Kb
Kf / Kb =2.125
hence Kf/0.0235 - Kf = 2.125
The answer for Kf is 0.016, however i can't seem to solve the last equation to get that answer, could someone go step by step on the last equation at how they got to that answer, please
well the last equation isn't right, if you put kf = 0.016 into it, you don't get 2.125 so you've done something wrong in your working somewhere
