How to set vacuum space for slabs?

Let’s say I want to work with the slabs, and I want to add 20 Angstrom vacuum space. Do I need just to set lattice parameter c=20 and k-point 1 in this direction?

If you are using fractional coordinates in your input file, setting c=20, will "zoom" all your cell.

Increasing cell parameters in order to add vacuum will work only if using Cartesian coordinates.
