### Thermodynamics for W

I don't really understand when we should compute with the formula w=-nRTln(V2/V1). Is this for only isothermal expansions or are there other situations in which we can use the formula?

### Gibb's Free Energy

Do Gibb's Free Energy and Enthalpy/Entropy relate in any way? If so, then how? And if they do not relate, then what are their differences?
