### Pseudo Equilibrium Constant

What is the pseudo equilibrium constant? How is it found and how is it different from the normal equilibrium constant?

### Re: Pseudo Equilibrium Constant

The pseudo equilibrium constant is the equilibrium constant of the transition state of a reaction, found in the reaction mechanism, whereas, a normal equilibrium constant is the equilibrium constant of the overall reaction. It is found by looking at the transition state reaction of a mechanism and using K=[products]/[reactants].
