Chemistry Gibbs Free Energy Solution: Calculate the standard change in Gibbs free energy...

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

Solution: Calculate the standard change in Gibbs free energy (kJ) for the following reaction at 25 °C. 3NO2 (g) + H2O (l) → 2HNO3 (l) + NO (g) 

Problem

Calculate the standard change in Gibbs free energy (kJ) for the following reaction at 25 °C. 

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


Solution

To calculate the Gibbs free energy of reaction, we need to use the Gibbs free energy of formation for each of the compounds present in the reaction.

We are not given those values in the problem so we would have to search for it in literature.
