### K and Q

why are only gases included in the k and q equations?

Because the concentration of solids and liquids are constant throughout the reaction.

### Re: K and Q

The concentration of solids and liquids are unchanged in a reaction. so only gasses are included.

Solids and liquids do not make much difference in equilibrium. Therefore, they are excluded.

### Re: K and Q

You exclude solids and liquids because they remain the same throughout the reaction

How exactly is the Q different from K if they are calculated the same way?

Q means there is still a reaction going on while K means it has reached an equilibrium.

Solvents don't change much since an insignificant amount of it decreases and concentration of a solid doesn't quite add up. Thats why they are excluded.

Thank you!
