H2O

If water is in gas form, will it be included in the equilibrium equation?

Yes, any molecule in gas or aqueous form should be included in the equilibrium constant.

Hello,
Yes water will still be included, since only pure solids and pure liquids are excluded from the equation. Therefore, because the physical state of H2O is in a gaseous state, it should not be ignored and should be included. :)

Yes, water in gas form in included, however water in liquid form is not.

Wait do we just ignore water as a liquid if we are doing partial pressures (Kp) or does this apply when we do Kc as well?

I believe so, since we only include gases and aqueous solutions in K expressions.
