Equilibrium Expression

Postby aphung1E » Mon Jan 06, 2020 8:27 pm

Does the equation to find the equilibrium constant only apply to ideal gases or can it be used as well when there are phase changes?

I believe that they apply to all equillibriums including homogenous or heterogenous equillibrium. Since the K expression only includes aqueous solutions, the solids or pure liquids in the chemical equation will not be used. However, the K equation can be used for all reactions at equilibrium.

I hope this helps.

I thought that this only applies only to gaseous reactions. I am not 100% though.
