**Q**: Is it true that the value of K depends on the amounts of reactants and products mixed together initially? Explain.

**A**:NO, Equilibrium and rates of reaction (kinetics) are independent of each other. A reaction with a large equilibrium constant value may be a fast reaction or a slow reaction. The same is true for a reaction with a small equilibrium constant value.

why the solution manual state that independent of each other?

In my opinion that rate constant of K(forward)/K(reverse)=K(equilibrium constant). Regarding this equation, we can get that K(equilibrium constant) is related to rate constant of K .it is not independent !
