Problem Details

The following reaction occurs in pure water:

H2O(l) + H2O(l) → H3O+(aq) + OH -(aq)

which is often abbreviated as

H2O(l) → H+(aq) + OH -(aq)

For this reaction, ΔG° = 79.9 kJ/mol at 25°C. Calculate the value of ΔG for this reaction at 25°C when [OH -] = 0.15 M
and [H +] 5 0.71 M.
