Problem: What is the value of K for this aqueous reaction at 298 K? ΔG° = 21.29 kJ/molA + B ⇌ C + D

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the equilibrium constant (K) at 298 K for the given reaction:

A + B ⇌ C + D


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


ΔG°rxn=-RTlnK


 We can now solve for the equilibrium constant using these given values:

ΔG˚rxn = 21.29 kJ/mol

R = 8.314 J/mol • K

T = 298 K
