Units and Conversions of Kp

Postby Chloe Alviz 1E » Sun Jan 12, 2020 5:25 pm

For several problems, I noticed how they used either "bar" or "Pa" for the units of partial pressure. Which set of units is the "default" one? Also, how would we convert between bar and Pa (kPa as well)?

Not sure which is the default but 1 bar = 10^5 Pa (1 kilopascal is 1,000 pascals).

Pascals are generally used as the unit for pressure, but the conversion is 1 bar=10^5 Pa

Just make sure the units are the same throughout, which means that the R value with the same unit is used in the equation.
