Equilibrium

How does the Van't Hoff equation relate to equilibrium?

Re: Equilibrium

it relates to equilibrium because K is the equilibrium constant. It helps to find the K at different temperatures.

Re: Equilibrium

Van Hoff's can find a K value knowing two different temperature or it can find a temperature knowing two different K values.

Re: Equilibrium

The K used in the Van't Hoff equation is the equilibrium constant. It is useful for finding the equilibrium constant at different temperatures.

Re: Equilibrium

It helps us observe how the equilibrium ratio between products and reactants differs for a reaction conducted at different temperatures.

Re: Equilibrium

Since K means the equlibirum ration of product over reactant. We use the equation to calculate K.

Re: Equilibrium

It relates the equilibrium constant, which shows the relative concentrations of each substance at a certain temperature, to the temperature, delta S, and delta H.
