You could save K(t) as field data. Then you can extract the zero'th
entry in the K array (which has just one element) and plot that over
time. A vts file with field data in it looks something like this...

<VTKFile type="StructuredGrid" [snip]
  <StructuredGrid WholeExtent=[snip]>
      <DataArray type="Float64" Name="MyField" NumberOfTuples="1" format="ascii"
 RangeMin="26.1" RangeMax="26.1">
