What is K and Q in chemistry?

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?

KKelvin (thermodynamic temperature scale)
KKosher (symbol on food labels)
KKilo- (thousand)
KKalium (Potassium)
