To calculate the equilibrium constant at any temperature of interest, we make use of the Gibbs- Helmholtz equation. ) # Δ G∅ & , ) # G &, + ∂% R (. + ∂% (.

Obviously, if the reaction is ∅ exothermic, an increase in temperature leads to a decrease in the equilibrium constant....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
