### T1 and T2

Why is it lnk1 at T1 and lnk2 at T2? Are both K and T changing?

K depends on T, so if one changes, so will the other.

Yeah remember that temperature changes also affect changes in equilibrium (K) which is why there is a seperate T1/K1 and T2/K2.

The concentrations of reactants and products at equilibrium changes when temperature changes, so the value of K will also change when temperature changes.

### Re: T1 and T2

Because of the equilibrium constant, K, is dependent on temperature, we write T1/K1 and T2/K2 to show that K will be a different value at a different temperature.

### Re: T1 and T2

Since K is influenced by temperature, this is why there are separate K values for differing T values

### Re: T1 and T2

This equation lets you solve for K at different temperatures, so it can show you the change in the equilibrium constant between T1 and T2.

### Re: T1 and T2

K values change with temperature, so the k value for one temperature will be different compared to a k value at another temperature. While pressure, volume, and concentration changes only shift the equilibrium of a reaction, temperature changes the actual k equilibrium value.
