Problem: Consider the accompanying diagram, which represents how exttip{Delta G}{Delta G} for a hypothetical reaction responds to temperature.At what temperature is the system at equilibrium?

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked at what temperature is the system at equilibrium based on the diagram.


Gibbs free energy is a measure of the potential for reversible or maximum work that may be done by a system at constant temperature and pressure.

Problem Details

Consider the accompanying diagram, which represents how for a hypothetical reaction responds to temperature.A line graph has temperature on the x-axis and delta-G on the y-axis (both unscaled). The line decreases linearly, passing through a delta-G of 0 at a temperature of 250 Kelvin.

At what temperature is the system at equilibrium?
