Problem Details

The partial pressure of carbon dioxide is 0.402 atm. Calculate the ΔG (in kJ) for the conversion limestone (CaCO3) to quicklime (CaO) at 797°C. 

                                       CaCO3 (s) → CaO (s) + CO2 (g) 

ΔH° 298 (in kJ/mol)       -1206.9         -635.5      -393.51 

ΔS° 298 (in J/mol*K)       92.9              40.0         213.6 

(Write answer in decimal form to two decimal places)
