Kp and Kc Same?

Postby Karan Ishii 3E » Mon Nov 28, 2016 10:42 pm

Just wondering... would Kp and Kc be the same for a reaction?

Kp is used for pressure and Kc is used for concentration

The difference between the constants Kc and Kp is that Kc is calculated using the molar concentrations of each substance involved, whereas Kp is calculated by using the partial pressures of the gasses involved.

Kp refers to the partial pressure where Kc refers to the concentration

Hopefully this can help! Kp and Kc are not the same because Kc refers to concentration while Kp refers to partial pressure.
