Entropy in Van't Hoff Equation

Postby Ryan Yoon 1L » Sun Feb 16, 2020 11:25 pm

Why is the difference in entropy the same when temperatures are increased?

The entropy increases with temperature. In the Van't Hoff Equation though, you are using change of entropy and not entropy, and you are assuming that change of entropy is constant under temperature increase.

We are assuming that both the initial and final entropy will go up the same amount so that the difference in the entropy will stay the same.

The difference in entropy between reactants and products at two different temperatures is the same because despite entropy changing with temperature, you are finding the overall change in entropy, so if reactants entropy goes up then products entropy would do the opposite.
