### Pre-equilibrium Approach

By the pre-equilibrium approach, we relate the rate laws that might contain intermediates by the equilibrium constant, correct? What happens if a reactant is a solid or liquid? How do we account for them then?

You don't account for solids or liquids in your equilibrium.

For K, we only consider the aqueous and gaseous states, and ignore the liquids and solids
