• Mole Snacks: +0/-2 Q, Kc & Kp Conceptual problem.
« on: November 06, 2010, 01:22:17 AM »
I am given $$\Delta H^{\circ} /$$ &  $$\Delta S^{\circ} /$$, and Temp (K)

I need to calculate $$K_{p} /$$ at the given Temp (K).
I can solve for  $$\Delta G^{\circ} /$$
then use this this equation:
$$\Delta G = \Delta G^{\circ} + RTlnQ /$$

I just set $$\Delta G=0 /$$ & solve for "Q".

My question is, will this Q value = $$K_{p} /$$  or $$K_{c} /$$ ? rabolisk
