Hi every body,

I am just asking myself if the two constants K and k have some relations with each other. Could anyone explain more about this?

Thanks

could you be more specific? Are you talking about Ka, Kb, Kp, Kc or something else?

Ha, I failed to notice one is capitalized (K) and the other is not(k)! (im going blind)

I should then say that the relations seem more than obvious.

k is a rate constant for kinetics

K is a ratio of equillibrium compositions

I think that is what you needed?

No, they are different, totally.

Equilibrium is where the forward reaction and reverse reaction have the same rate.

The equilibrium constant will be equal to the ratio of the rate constants.

Is that what you were looking for?
