K
Kubelka Munk coefficient of Absorption. The optical property that describes the absorption of light by a colorant or mixture of colorants.

K/S
The ratio of the optical constants, K (absorption coefficient) and S (scattering coefficient) for a colorant. It is part of the equation used to calculate formulations and corrections. The equation states that K/S can be calculated from the reflectance of a sample: (this is a division expression) K/S = (1-R)2 / 2R It also states that K/S is directly proportional to colorant concentration. Knowing the reflectance measurements of the samples, and the concentration of colorants in the mixtures, the K/S of the mixture can be calculated.

Kubelka Munk theory
A theory that describes the optical behavior of materials which scatter and absorb radiant energy.
