Posted by L.Bianchessi on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 12:10am.

A chemist trying to synthesize a particular compound attempts two different synthesis reactions. The equilibrium constants for the two reactions are 23.3 and 2.2 X 10^4 at room temp. However, after 15minutes the chemist finds that the reaction with the smaller equilibrium constant produces more desired product. Explain how this might be possible.

I don't get it???
UsuAlly when the constant has a larger value it produces more produces making the reaction lie to the right at equilibrium. Why is the smaller constAnt producing more product????
