### Entropy and enthalpy

For the Van't Hoff equation, are we always going to assume that entropy and enthalpy will remain constant?

### Re: Entropy and enthalpy

In my lecture notes, I have written down that it is assumed that entropy and enthalpy are constant when writing the final equation. I would imagine that they would tell us if for some reason we could not make that assumption.

### Re: Entropy and enthalpy

I would agree with the above statement. If anything, assume that whatever details Lavelle leaves out of the question are going to be constant.
