### K'

What is k' and when are we supposed to use it?

### Re: K'

k' is the rate constant for the reverse reaction. It'll probably be used with the equation K=k/k', where equilibrium constant is the ratio of kforward over kreverse.

### Re: K'

It is a usual rate to understand in order to solve using the pre-equilibrium method!

k' is the reverse reaction constant and can be used in the equation K = k/k'

k' is the rate constant for the reverse reaction. It's used when your making a rate law. Remember k/k'=K(reaction equilibrium constant).
