water in the equilibrium constant

Postby Savannah Mance 4G » Thu Feb 27, 2020 10:34 am

Which phases of water are included and not included in the equilibrium constant? Is it included when it's a gas and solid but not liquid?

Water is only included in the equilibrium constant expression when it is in the gas phase. Solids and liquids are not included when calculating equilibrium constants.

To add on, water would be included in the gas phase but not as a solid or liquid since solids and liquids aren't included when calculating equilibrium constants since the molar concentration wouldn't change.
