k'

Postby Samantha Jimenez 4k » Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:19 am

so what exactly is k' and how is it used to find the overall k?

K' is for the reverse reaction. Just a different direction but still the same concept.

k' is the rate constant for the reverse reaction, and the K ( equilibrium constant ) would be equal to k ( forward reaction ) / k' ( reverse reaction )

Like the others said k' is the rate constant for the reverse reaction. In addition to applying it to the K=k/k', you can also see k' in elementary reaction rates that are used to find net rate of formation.
