Hi, I really don't get how to differentiate between Kc and Kp.

Basically Kc is the equilibrium constant when it is found through the use of concentrations (typically non-gasses), while Kp is the equilibrium constant when it is found through the use of partial pressures (typically gasses).

Kc is the equilibrium constant for aqueous solutions. kc=[P]/[R]. Kp is the equilibrium constant for gas phases. kp= (P)/(R)
