Just to confirm, we can use q(rev)/T with the q value derived from an irreversible reaction since entropy is a state property right? I.e. use ∆H from an irreversible reaction to calculate q(rev). Are there any exceptions or stuff I have to take note?
Yeah, since it's a state function the 'path' it took to get from initial to final doesn't matter so you could use the reversible path and that equation to solve for the irreversible. I think the book goes over this idea in more depth in the first few pages of chapter 9 as well. Hope that helps.
