Answer

By looking at the equilibrium constant, we can say that: If the equilibrium constant > 1 then the reaction is products favored that is a forward reaction will be preferred. If the equilibrium constant is < 1 that we can say the reaction is reactants favored, and a reverse reaction occurs, If equilibrium constant = 1, then we can say that the reaction is at equilibrium.
