Solids and Liquids

Postby Eileen Si 1G » Wed Jan 22, 2020 12:37 am

To clarify, solids and liquids would not be included in a K expression, right? So, only liquids and aqueous molecules would be involved?

Yes. Solids and liquids stay out of the equilibrium constant.

Yes only aq and gases are included in the equilibrium constant.

Solids and liquids ARE NOT included, while gases and aqueous solutions ARE included in the equilibrium constant!

Solids and liquids are pure substances, and thus are not included in the equilibrium constant. A good example of this is that H20 is a liquid, which is often the solvent in the reaction and is not part of the reaction itself, so it is not included in the equilibrium constant.

Solids and liquids are not included in the equation for the K constant, only gases and aqueous solutions.

Solids and liquids are not included, only gases and aq solutions are included in the equilibrium constant. Solids and liquids are pure substances, the molar concentration of a pure substance does not change in a reaction, thus being excluded from the equilibrium constant.
