We're being asked to identify which of the given statements is true at equilibrium for the following reaction:

2 NH3 (g) ⇌ N2 (g) + 3 H2 (g)         Ke = 2.30 x 10-5 at 300 °C

K is the equilibrium expression of the concentrations in the reaction. The general form of an equilibrium expression is:

$\overline{){\mathbf{K}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{products}}{\mathbf{reactants}}}$
