Van't Hoff equation question

When using the Van't Hoff equation does it matter which temperature and equilibrium constant are chosen as T1/T2 and K1/K2? Or does the order not matter as long as the equilibrium constant and its respective temperature are matched appropriately?

Re: Van't Hoff equation question

I believe, in general, the final temperature and respective equilibrium constant are used as T2 and K2 and the initial temperature and respective equilibrium constant as T1 and K1.
