units

Postby inlovewithchemistry » Mon Mar 11, 2019 6:19 pm

are the common units for k values (mol/L*s) and the units for overall reactions (L/mol*s)? why are these different in textbook problems?

I don't think they really carry any significance other than showing that your end units are always going to be mol/L/s, and k's units are going to be designed to cancel out any units for the other terms so that your end result is mol/L/s.

There's no real units for k it's based off what the problem entails whether given concentration or partial pressure.
