Since the Van't Hoff Equation is derived from the Gibbs Free Energy equation, how will we know which one to use? Like, in what scenario would the Van't Hoff Equation be used over the standard Gibbs Free Energy equation where deltaG = deltaH - T*deltaS ?
the Van't Hoff equation can be used to find the equilibrium constant of the reaction while the gibb's free energy equation can be used to find deltaG, which can then determine if the reaction is spontaneous or not
The vant hoff equation is used when we want to calculate the K of a reaction at a certain temperature. Gibbs free energy is mostly to determine if a reaction will be spontaneous at a given temperature.
