🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Hoffman's class at DREXEL.

Solution: Determine ΔG° (kJ) for the following reaction:Fe2O3(s) + 3CO(g) → 2Fe(s) + 3CO2(g)Use the following reactions with known ΔG°rxn values:2Fe(s) + 3/2 O2(g) → Fe2O3(s),         ΔG°rxn = -742.2 kJCO(g) + 1/2 O2(g) → CO2(g),             ΔG°rxn = -257.2 kJ Express your answer using one decimal place.

Problem

Determine ΔG° (kJ) for the following reaction:

Fe2O3(s) + 3CO(g) → 2Fe(s) + 3CO2(g)

Use the following reactions with known ΔG°rxn values:

2Fe(s) + 3/2 O2(g) → Fe2O3(s),         ΔG°rxn = -742.2 kJ

CO(g) + 1/2 O2(g) → CO2(g),             ΔG°rxn = -257.2 kJ 

Express your answer using one decimal place.
