Change of K

Postby Salma Sudarmadji 2I » Fri Nov 25, 2016 11:33 pm

Why does change in temperature cause K value to change but not change in pressure or volume?

Interesting question. We will discuss this in Chem 14B as part of Thermodynamics.

Changing the temperature changes the relative stability of compounds, thus favoring either reactant or product side of the reaction.
