Unformatted text preview: ns for the reaction to be at equilibrium. This value of Q is called the equilibrium constant, Keq (or just K): aA bB pP rR ci, Q, and Keq are just numbers related by algebra. They can be manipulated just like any other numbers! DIMENSIONS OF Q AND K • By convention, Q and K are reported as dimensionless numbers, based on the conventions that c is always in mol/L units for dissolved species, atm for gases, and mole fraction for water and solids.
• For both concentrations and K values, log10X ≡ pX Example. The equilibrium constant for the form...
