(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Precisely what does the following equation, in which R is the gas constant, allow one to calculate?

ln x_{s}= -dH_{f}/R(T_{0}-T/TT_{0})

I have no idea what this could be. I know what each part of the equation is (gas constant, change in enthalpy of formation, Freezing point depression etc.) I just don't know what it allows me to calculate...except that its the natural log of something. Ithinkit has something to do with entropy, but I'm not sure. Any help would be much appreciated.
