HW #11.15 - Calculating reaction Gibbs Free Energy

Postby Jeana Wei 3C » Tue Feb 14, 2017 7:49 pm

Calculate the reaction Gibbs free energy of I2(g) -> 2 I(g) at 1200. K (K = 6.8) when the partial pressures of I2 and I are 0.13 bar and 0.98 bar, respectively.

I know I need to use the equation deltaG = deltaG(standard) + RTln(Q) and to find deltaG(standard) by using equation deltaG(standard) = -RTlnK. I'm given K, but which values do I use for R and T? Do I use T = 298 K to find the standard delta G and then use T = 1200K when I'm solving for deltaG in the first equation written above? Also, which value do I use for R?

what you think is correct and R is 8.314
