Question

The equilibrium constant for the following reaction is:

  1. Less than 1 
  2. More than 1 
  3. Equal to 1 
  4. Cannot be predicted 


Solution

The correct option is B More than 1 
The CH bond is weaker when compared to the CD bond. So due to hyperconjugation, the carbocation formed in the product side is more stable than the one at the reactant side. The reaction tends to move forward and hence, the equilibrium constant is more than 1.
