Constants in Van’t Hoff Equation

Postby Drew Myers 4G » Sun Feb 23, 2020 9:47 pm

Are deltaS and deltaH considered constant when comparing a reaction at two different temperatures, or are other variables in the equation constant?

Yes, delta S and delta H are assumed to not be temperature-dependent, meaning constant, when using the vant hoff equation

In the Van’t Hoff Equation, deltaS and deltaH are constant when comparing the same reaction at two different temperatures.

In the Van't Hoff equation, both deltaS and deltaH are assumed to be constant independent of temperature, however, only deltaH shows up in the most easily usable form of the equation.

The entropy and enthalpy are different at different temperatures but their delta's are the same.
