Using K

Postby Janice Xiao 1I » Sun Feb 25, 2018 4:33 pm

When calculating the reaction rate, why is K used instead of Q?

I think you are getting K confused with k. K is the equilibrium constant. k, what we are using in this section, is the rate constant of just the forward reaction.

Yeah, this question needs to be more specific, but I would go by what the person above said.

Return to “Method of Initial Rates (To Determine n and k)”
