Calculating Kp

Postby Lorena Zhang 4E » Wed Jan 09, 2019 9:21 pm

When calculating Kp, do we have to change the unit of pressure into a standard one (bars or atm) or just use the unit that the question gives?

I believe you use the units that are given and you just use a constant that corresponds to the units that are given.

The solutions manual includes answers with bars and atm so I believe either is fine. Not sure which, if either, are considered SI units
