### Kc and Kp

What is the difference between using Kc and Kp?

### Re: Kc and Kp

I believe Kc deals with Equilibrium Constant concentrations while Kp deals with Equilibrium Constant partial pressures

Kc also uses brackets whereas Kp uses parentheses

Kc is used for aqueous solutions and Kp is for gases.

### Re: Kc and Kp

Kc is the equilibrium constant in concentrations and Kp is the equilibrium constant for gases which is in partial pressure.

### Re: Kc and Kp

When solving for Kp do we have to represent the products and reactants as partial pressures?

### Re: Kc and Kp

Both are equilibrium ocnstants, but Kc is calculated from concentrations, and Kp is calculated from partial pressures.

Kc is solved using concentration while Kp is solved using partial pressures.

### Re: Kc and Kp

Kc is often the equilibrium constant found in concentrations while Kp deals with the partial pressures.
