Van't Hoff Equation

Postby Chris Lamb 1G » Sat Feb 10, 2018 11:50 am

The equation is not listed on the formula sheet. Does this mean that we need to know how to derive the equation for the midterm?

From my understanding the equation is not on the equation sheet but you should either memorize it or know how to derive it from the fact that
∆H - T∆S = -RT ln (K). It's pretty helpful for specific problems given K and ∆H, but I doubt you'll have to show the derivation if you do use the equation.

I would memorize the equation, but it should be pretty simple to derive just in case you forget on the test.

Based on the learning objectives listed for Chapter 9, it would be helpful to know how to derive the equation.
