    I missed this question on my exam. Can you show me the correct way to do it?

    H2O(l)= H+(aq) +OH(aq)

    If K1(reaction going towards right)= 2.4e-5/second and if
    K-1(reaction going towards left) = 1.3e11/M.s

    what is the equilibrium constant K where K= [H][OH]/[H2O]?

    what are the product values in Moles for [H][OH], [H], and [OH]
