### ln(k2/k1)=(-delta H/R)(1/T2 - 1/T1)

We learned this equation in class but to calculate K when not at 25 degrees C yet it's not on our formula sheet. Will it be on the test and if so how would it show up/would we have to memorize it?

This is a derived equation from the formula of delta G (standard) = -RTlnK where you solve for K for two different T value. You have to combine the two different T equations to find the equation ln(k2/k1)=(-delta H/R)(1/T2 - 1/T1). So technically it is on the equation sheet, but you can memorize it to not have to go through these steps.

Can anyone provide an example of using this equation?

memorize it and understand where it comes from, but i believe it's also on the test's formula page
