## Gibbs Free Energy vs. Internal Energy

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

### Gibbs Free Energy vs. Internal Energy

Can someone explain the difference between Gibbs free energy and internal energy to better conceptually understand the two?

### Re: Gibbs Free Energy vs. Internal Energy

Internal energy is the energy within a system at any time, while Gibbs free energy is energy that is available to be given off to do work.I hope this helps somehow.
