### Alternative Forms

What is the purpose of having alternative forms of the equilibrium constant?

It just depends on what unit the the products and reactants are given in. If it's in molar concentration, then the equilibrium constant is denoted as Kc. If it's given in partial pressures, then it's denoted as Kp. They both mean the same thing, but it's just to differentiate between both.
