Problem

Part A: Use the data given here to calculate the values of ΔG°rxn (kJ/mol) at 25 °C for the reaction described by the equation: 

A + B ⇌ C  

A  ΔG°= +387.7 kJ/mol

B  ΔG°= +529.5 kJ/mol

C ΔG°= +402.0 kJ/mol

Part B: If ΔH°rxn and ΔS°rxn  are both positive values, what drives the spontaneous reaction and in what direction at standard conditions?

a) enthalpy-driven to the left

b) entropy-driven to the left

c) entropy-driven to the right

d) enthalpy-driven to the right
