Why is the equilibrium constant independent of concentration?
I think it should be dependent on the concentration as the formula for finding the equilibrium constant is according to this photo
The bold letters show the formula and it clearly show it's dependency on concentration then why do say K is independent of concentration ? Please explain elaborately.

As product concentration increases, the rate of the reverse reaction increases. Eventually they reach the point where the rate that reactants are converted into products exactly equals the rate that products are converted into reactants. This is equilibrium and the concentrations of reactants and products do not change. Because of this equilibrium constant do not change with the change in concntration.

- question 54...chemical equilibrium... how to solve.... plz tell
- Explain relationships b/w equilibrium constant K, reaction quotient Q and Gibbs energy G.
- For a reaction, A + B → 2C 2 moles of A and 3 moles of B are allowed to react. If equilibrium constant is 4 at 400° C, then the mole of C at equilibrium is
