How do you define Kc and Kp mathematically and show the relationship between them?

Before defining Kc and Kp; let us look at the term chemical potential

Chemical potential:

The partial molar Gibbs free energy (G) has been given a specific symbol "μ" because it deals with various aspects of thermodynamic studies.
The chemical potential "μi" of the component i in a system is defined as the change in the Gibbs free energy with change in the mole of component i when temperature (T) and pressure (P) and the ...

Solution Summary

This solution provides a detailed definition of chemical potential, equilibrium constants Kp and Kc. It also shows how to derive Kc and Kp mathematically and show the relationship between them.
