on the final, will we only need to know units in mol, L, and s or will Kpa show up because it was in the textbook

I'm pretty sure that we will only have to use SI units, therefore, only mol, L, and s. But then again, I am not 100% sure.

It might be useful to know, but on the equation sheet he does give us the conversation between kPa and atm (1 atm = 101.325 kPa), so this is not something you would have to memorize.

SI units and any conversions on the constants and equations sheet are fair game.

Also for kinetics specifically make sure you know that the units for a rate constant can vary depending on the order of the equation. The rate should be in mol/L*s so you can determine the rate constant from there depending on the order. Or we might have to get the order of a reaction when we are given the units for the rate constant.
