Does k have restrictions on which phases are included? Like if a reactant or product is in the solid or liquid phase, do we not consider it?

Re: Disregard liquid and solid reactants in rate law?

"That is correct. As for water, water or any other molecule that is not the solvent, if it is part of a reaction, it can be in the rate law. However if the solvent is water, you do not include water in the rate law since you have excess amount of water so that the concentration of water does not contribute to the reaction rate."

This is one of doctor lavelles previous answers to a similar question, about disregarding liquid and solid reactants.
