Problem: The value of G° for a reaction conducted at 25 °C is 2.8 kJ/mol The equilibrium constant for a reaction is __________ at this temperature?

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the equilibrium constant for this reaction , K at 25 ˚C 


Recall that ΔG and K are related to each other:


ΔG°rxn=-RTlnK


We’re given:

R = 8.314 J/mol • K

ΔG° = 2.8 kJ

T = 25 ˚C + 273.15 = 298.15 K
