What exactly is the difference between the following equations? $$p = kx \qquad\text{and}\qquad m = kp$$ Is the $k$ in both same, because I have seen same $k$ in textbooks for both equations?

    $\begingroup$ Both are different Henry's law constants. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry%27s_law $\endgroup$ – William R. Ebenezer May 20 at 20:48

    $\begingroup$ Henry's law constants also reflect an implicit scale: molality, mole fraction, concentration, etc. (with a given reference state defined as such). $\endgroup$ – Rolf May 20 at 22:40
