Why Equillibrium constant is said to be independent of the directionfrom which equillibrium is approached? When we know that the constant gets inversed when the direction is reversed.

```							Dear student,
The Equilibrium Constant, Kc, relates to a  chemical reaction at equilibrium. It can be calculated if the  equilibrium concentration of each reactant and product in a reaction at  equilibrium is known. The equilibrium expression below, formed from the  general chemical equilibrium, is universally true. The chemical  components happen to be gases.
aA(g) + bB(g) = cC(g) + dD(g) The Ideal Gas Equation shows that the pressure of a gas is proprtional to its concentration.
pV = nRT
where p is pressure of a particular gas (its partial pressure) in an  equilibrium mixture, V is the total volume, n is the number of moles of  the particular gas, R is the general gas constant, and T is the absolute  temperature.
In the above equation where the temperature is also constant,
P a n/V
The equilibrium constant can therefore also be expressed in terms of partial pressures, and is denoted as Kp: There are several types of equilibrium constants. Each is constant at a constant temperature. For example, consider the following ionic equilibrium involving the aqueous solution of a weak acid:
CH3COOH(aq) + H2O(l) = CH3COO-(aq) + H3O+(aq) Ka is called the 'acid dissociation constant'. Note that  water is omitted from the expression because it is present in such vast  excess that its concentration changes negligibly on the formation of  equilibrium and is therefore effectively constant. The concentration of  the water is included in the equilibrium constant, and Ka can be thought of as a modified equilibrium constant.

All the best.
