Constant delta H

Postby Petrina Kan 2I » Sun Feb 16, 2020 11:27 pm

I am confused why delta H remains constant in the Van't Hoff equation. Can someone explain this to me please?

Delta H remains constant in the Van't Hoff Equation, since its under the assumption that temperature changes little enough that delta H can be considered constant throughout the reaction.

Can we always assume that delta S naught is constant when using the Van't Hoff Equation?

Yes, the Vant Hoff equation can only be applied effectively under the assumption that the entropy change is independent of the temperature of the reaction. This assumption can be made unless explicitly told otherwise.

we are assuming the difference between the final H and initial H to remain constant, and that the temperature change isn't significant enough to affect that
