Converting Qc to Qp

Postby Joon Chang 2F » Sun Jan 13, 2019 3:14 pm

I know that Q is calculated in the same way as K, so does that mean conversions are done the same way using P=(conc.)RT?

Q is essentially the same thing as K, just not at equilibrium, so yes it should be the same formula. Does anybody know if it will be given to us?

Would it be the same as K=[products]/[reactants]?

Q and K are calculated the same way. They are essentially the same value, except K is the equilibrium constant while Q's relation to K indicates whether the forard or reverse reaction will be favored until Q=K. Also, I believe that we will either be given the K value, or the means to calculate it.
