We are being asked to determine the value of the reaction quotient, Qc at the start of a certain reaction, when only reactants are present; no products have been formed.
Recall that the reaction quotient, Q, can be calculated like an equilibrium constant with the formula shown below:
Since there are no products formed, this means that:
At the start of a certain reaction, only reactants are present; no products have been formed. What is the value of Qc at this point in the reaction?
