We use reactivity to calculate K, and concentrations/partial pressures are just an approximation of the reactivities. Reactivities have no units, so K will therefore not have any units. This was covered in the modules and lectures in further detail. Hope this helps!
Megan Kirschner wrote:K is y a ratio (between products and reactants) and so it does not have units- but so does this mean that all ratios we use in this class will be unitless? Is it safe to apply this rule widely?
If it's simply a ratio then most likely, yes. Constants will come with their units but ratios should remain unitless.
