Subject: Potassium Bi/Dichromate

Is there a difference between potassium bichromate and potassium dichromate?
If I have the latter and a formula calls for the former, can I use it? I am
thinking that they are interchangable but want to make sure.

Thanks -

Two names for the same thing. I think bichromate is the older name but am not sure. One can find many names for exactly the same compounds.
