    So Kc is "the equilibrium constant in terms of concentrations" so they're kinda the same thing so I don't understand how they supposed to affect each other, please explain

    thank you

    kc has a fixed value (at a fixed temperature) and gives a measure as to the extent of the equilibrium.

    Large value for kc = equilibrium position far to the side of the products.

    kc = approximately 1, equilibrium position pretty much in the middle with similar concentrations of reactants and products

    Small value for kc = equilibrium position lies on the side of the reactants.
