### Pseudo-equilibrium constant

Would you calculate the pseudo-equilibrium constant for a reaction the same way you would a normal equilibrium constant? And does each transition state in a reaction have its own pseudo-equlilibrium constant?

### G for a system not at equilibrium

For the equation $\Delta G =\Delta G^{\circ}+RT lnQ$ do you calculate Q using the concentrations of the product and reactants at that particular point in the reaction?
