7th Edition 6N.3c

For Q in the solutions manual, the partial pressures are in the numerator and the concentrations are in the denominator. Are you allowed to mix partial pressures and concentrations when calculating Q?

Yes, as long as ∆G° or (equivalently) K was measured using the corresponding standard states.

I was wondering this too. How would you go about solving for Q?
