### van't hoff equation clarification

to clarify, the van't hoff equation can be used to solve for the equilibrium constant of the reaction (K) ?

### Re: van't hoff equation clarification

You can use Van't Hoff equation to find K based on changing temperature but you can only do it in cases where you can assume entropy and enthalpy stays constant.

Yes, you are able to rearrange the van't hoff equation to solve for K, where K = e^(-enthalpy/RT + entropy/R).
