Calculating the Reaction Quotient, Q. The expression for the reaction quotient, Q, looks like that used to calculate an equilibrium constant but Q can be calculated for any set of conditions, not just for equilibrium. Q can be used to determine which direction a reaction will shift to reach equilibrium.
Besides, what is K in the periodic table of elements?
Potassium. The name is derived from the english word potash. The chemical symbol K comes from kalium, the Mediaeval Latin for potash, which may have derived from the arabic word qali, meaning alkali. Potassium is a soft, silvery-white metal, member of the alkali group of the periodic chart.
What is K in chemical kinetics?
In chemical kinetics a reaction rate constant or reaction rate coefficient, k, quantifies the rate of a chemical reaction. Here k(T) is the reaction rate constant that depends on temperature.
What is K stand for in science?
|K||Kelvin (thermodynamic temperature scale)|
|K||Kosher (symbol on food labels)|
