### changing K

do the trends for Kp also apply to Kc? for example, "if one starts with a higher pressure of reactant, will the equilibrium constant be larger?" this is false for Kp so is it also false for Kc?

I believe so because both variable uses [products]/[reactants] so I would assume the trends are the same

Yes! Kp and Kc are really both just different input values to get to K so they must have similar implications in practice.

Yes. The formula for calculating both equilibrium constant is the same and the underlying concept is also the same: the equilibrium constant is the same under the same temperature despite changes made to partial pressures or concentrations.

Yes I think so since Kp and Kc are generally the same thing except one is used for reactions with aqueous solutions and the other is used for reactions with gases.
