The K values are needed to answer this question.e. weaker acid + stronger base → stronger acid + weaker base

FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to describe the forward direction of a Bronsted-Lowry acid-base reaction that has a K value greater than 1.

Recall that in equilibrium, a value of K > 1 means that the reaction favors the forward reaction.
