FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to calculate the change in Gibbs free energy for each of the following sets of ΔH°rxn, ΔS°rxn, and T.


We can calculate the change in Gibbs free energy (ΔG°rxn) using the following equation:

G°rxn=H°rxn-TS°rxn

Note that we need to convert J/K into kJ/K since we need ΔG˚ in kJ/mol.



Part 1. ΔH°rxn= 88 kJ , ΔS°rxn= 154 J/K , T= 292 K
