# Problem: Calculate K for the reaction between glutamate and ammonia. (The standard free energy change for the reaction is +14.2 kJ/mol. Assume a temperature of 298 K.)

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Brewster's class at MEMPHIS.

###### FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the equilibrium constant (K) of a reaction between glutamate and ammonia

Recall that ΔG˚rxn and K are related to each other:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\Delta G}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{rxn}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{-}}{\mathbf{RTlnK}}}$

where:

ΔG˚rxn is the standard free energy change

R is the universal gas constant

T is the temperature

K is the equilibrium constant
