NO(g) + 1/2 O2(g) → NO2(g)
We’re given the ΔH˚f and S˚ of each reactant and product:
Reactant or product
We can use the following equation to solve for ΔG˚rxn:
Consider the oxidation of NO to NO2 :
NO(g) + 1/2O2(g) → NO2(g)
|Reactant or product||ΔH°f(kJ/mol)||S°(J/mol•K)|
Calculate ΔG∘rxn at 25∘C. Express your answer with the appropriate units.
Determine whether the reaction is spontaneous at standard conditions.
