    Kc is the equilibrium constant expressed in terms of concentrations. It is worked out as the concentration of the products divided by the concentration of the reactants. For example for A + B >>> C + D

    Kc = [C][D]/[A][B]

    The [c] notation is in reference to a certain concentration. The brackets mean some type of concentration. You need to find the concentration in this case.

    However if there is a subscript below the K. It could be in reference to the number of atoms of a certain element.
