Constants using pressure or concentration

Postby Lina Petrossian 1D » Sun Jan 13, 2019 5:44 pm

Can someone please explain why and when we can use pressure or concentration to calculate the constant K?

Most likely, you use concentration for calculating K. However, you will be able to find out whether to use pressure or concentration if it is denoted K(p) for pressure or K(c) for concentration.

K(p) is also only used if all products and reactants are gaseous
