### How to calculate K

How would you calculate K if you are given ΔG°? I used the equation ΔG°=-RTlnK and isolated lnK so that lnK=ΔG°/-RT. How do you isolate the K term from lnK?

### Re: How to calculate K

to isolate k you would do e^lnk

and for the other side of the equation e^....

From lnK=ΔG°/-RT you take e^x of both sides so the ln will cancel and you will have e^whatever ΔG°/-RT is

### Re: How to calculate K  [ENDORSED]

If you are given ΔG°, you can calculate K by first isolating it. Once you have lnK = ΔG°/-RT you then get rid of the natural log in front of the K by using e. You end up with e^(lnK) = e^(ΔG°/-RT) and the e^ln cancels out, so K = e^(ΔG°/-RT).
