Kp is the equilibrium constant calculated using partial pressure (of gases). Kc is the equilibrium constant calculated using concentration of products and reactions at equilibrium. You can convert between partial pressure and concentration through PV = nRT. where P = (n/v)RT and n/v is concentration.
