Concept

Problem: A reaction is spontaneous under a certain set of conditions. Select all equations that must be true for this reaction under these conditions: ΔGrxn < 0, ΔGrxn > 0, ΔGrxn = 0, ΔG˚rxn < 0, ΔG˚rxn > 0, ΔG˚rxn = 0, ΔHrxn < 0, ΔHrxn > 0, ΔHrxn = 0, ΔSrxn < 0, ΔSrxn > 0, ΔSrxn = 0, Q = K, Q < K, Q > K

FREE Expert Solution

Under nonstandard conditions:

ΔGrxn=ΔG°rxn-RTlnQ

 ΔG < 0 or ΔG = (–); the reaction is spontaneous

• ΔG = 0; the reaction is at equilibrium

• ΔG > 0 or ΔG = (+); the reaction is non-spontaneous
