Solids and Liquids with the Reaction Quotient

Postby Eunice Lee 1A » Sun Jan 13, 2019 9:52 pm

I know that solids and liquids are not included when considering the equilibrium constant, but are they also not included when calculating the reaction quotient?

no, solids and liquids are not included in Q for the same reasons they aren't included in K (their concentration does not change or changes so little it is insignificant). Ultimately, Q and K are both calculated in the exact same way, only the numbers themselves are different because in the case of Q the reaction may not be at equilibrium

No, solids and liquids are not included in Q or K.
