Changes in K

Postby taywebb » Sat Jan 19, 2019 3:01 pm

Does anyone know what actually changes K? I know changing the reaction and the temperature changes it, but does anything else change it?

The only thing that changes K, the equilibrium constant, is temperature. Everything else just causes a shift equilibrium position, but not the equilibrium constant.

Temperature (as said above) is the only change that will have an effect on the K constant. This is due to a change in energy provided and other conditions related to temperature change. Often raising the temperature will shift it to endothermic direction.

The equilibrium constant only changes when temperature changes. Anything else will not cause the ratio of products and reactant to change.

Temperature changes the equilibrium constant. When temperature increases the Kp decreases.
