Writing K for heterozygous reactions

Postby Prasanna Padmanabham 4I » Wed Jan 15, 2020 10:41 am

Hello,
If there was an equation with liquids and gases in products and/or reactants side, how would you write Kc? Would you include both liquids and gases in it or only the gases or do you write two separate equations?

You would only use the gases to write the one (1) Kc equation. Liquids and solids are not included. For calculating Kc, you only take gases and aqueous solutions into consideration.

You would only need to include gases and aqueous compounds in your final Kc equation (Products/reactants), not pure substances (liquid and solids).

Liquids are not included when calculating Kc, but if you have both aqueous and gaseous compounds you can calculate Kc including all gaseous and aqueous compounds.

You wouldn't need to include any of the compounds that are liquid or solid because they are not included in Kc calculations. It is just based on aqueous or gaseous compounds.
