### Re: Relevance of K in Van't Hoff Equation

The Van't Hoff Equation is especially useful in relating K, the equilibrium constant, to the standard enthalpy change with regards to the change in temperature. Also, it is helpful in determining how a chemical reaction can change when temperature changes if the enthalpy change is constant.
