Q

Postby 605110118 » Thu Jan 09, 2020 3:13 pm

Can the reactant quotient apply to both concentration and partial pressure, just as K does?

Yes, I believe it can be applied to both.

Yes. You calculate it the same way as K, except the reaction is simply not at equilibrium.

The reaction quotient can be calculated for partial pressures and concentrations, but when comparing Q to K it is important to compare the reaction quotient for partial pressures to the equilibrium constant to partial pressures, not the equilibrium constant for concentration.

Q is basically the same thing as K but the reaction is not at equilibrium, so yes it can.

Yup, it is a ratio!

Q is not a fixed ratio like K is. Which means that Q is the ratio of the concentrations and the partial pressures of the products to those of the reactants at that moment in the reaction.It is essentially K but doesn't have to be equal to K. So yes, I think it can be applied to both.

Q, the reactant quotient, is calculated the same way as K, but Q is not in equilibrium.

Yes I believe Q can be applied to both concentration and partial pressure.

Yes! Q or Qc or Qp is calculated the same way as K :)

Yes it can apply to both! They are both calculated the same way. Just the only difference between the two is that K is at equilibrium while Q can be calculated at anytime in the reaction.
