### Van't Hoff equation

Because the Van't Hoff equation isn't given on the formula sheet can you use this method?
1. given standard entropy and enthalpy of reaction, solve for delta G using delta(G) = delta(H) - Tdelta(S)
2. Solve for k(equilibrium constant) using delta(G)=-RTlnk

I would imagine so. Isn't the Van't Hoff equation broken down into those two equations that you mentioned? So I feel like it would be ok.

Yes you can do this, but you can always just derive the Van't Hoff equation from deltaG=deltaH -t*deltaS

You can derive them from those two equations, but you have to remember to subtract the values at the first temp, equilibrium constant from the second equilibrium constant. It's probably easier to remember it than derive it.

You can derive the equation by substituting ∆G˚=-RTlnk into ∆G˚=∆H˚-T∆S˚ to get -RTlnk =∆H˚-T∆S and then dividing both sides by -RT.
