Kp Units

Postby Richmund Tan 1L » Fri Nov 06, 2015 11:26 am

Hi guys!

When calculating the Kp value, specifically for gases, I noticed that our Professor would use atm. Does anyone know if other units are appropriate, such as torr or mg Hg, or must we always convert to atm before calculating Kp?

You can use any unit, but atm is the preferred one due to ease of subsequent conversions (for example, going from Kp to Kc)
