We’re asked to determine if the equilibrium concentrations of the reactants and products depend on their initial concentrations.
Recall that a reaction is at equilibrium when the rate of the forward reaction (favors products) is equal to the rate of the reverse reaction (favors reactants).
This means that:
Do the equilibrium concentrations of the reactants and products depend on their initial concentrations?
