Solids and Liquids in K expression

Postby Jaira_Murphy_2D » Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:44 am

When writing the K expression and there's a solid or liquid in the reaction, should I balance the whole equation first and then not include the solid or liquid in my K expression? Or ignore the solid or liquid from the beginning and balance my the equation without them?

Balance your equation first and then omit the ones that are solids are liquids.

Balance the entire equation first, and then omit the liquids and solids. This will reduce the chance of you making an error.
