We’re being asked to determine the ΔG°rxn at 298 K for the given reaction:

2 HNO3(aq) + NO(g) → 3 NO2(g) + H2O(l)

We can use the following equation to solve for ΔG˚rxn:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\Delta G}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{rxn}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{\Delta H}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{rxn}}}{\mathbf{-}}{\mathbf{T\Delta S}}{{\mathbf{°}}}_{{\mathbf{rxn}}}}$

For this problem, we need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate ΔH˚rxn.

Step 2: Calculate ΔS˚rxn.

Step 3: Use ΔH˚rxn and ΔS˚rxn to calculate for ΔG˚rxn.
