# In a reaction if the equilibrium constant K was infinity, could you produce an infinite number of products at equilibrium?

It's impossible to produce an infinite amount products if the k constant was infinity?

no right?

• Leaving aside the fact that you'd only have an infinite equilibrium constant if the denominator was exactly zero (i.e., not just very small, but zero), the amount of product you produce will be limited by the amount of starting material. At most, you could only produce 100% molar yield. – Geoff Hutchison Oct 26 '14 at 3:42
• but at equilibrium, wouldnt the reaction constantly go forward and backwards and never end? – Nerdingout Oct 27 '14 at 0:29
• As stated in the answer, an infinite K would mean that the forward reaction will go to completion and the backwards reaction will never occur. – Geoff Hutchison Oct 27 '14 at 1:21
