11.15 Gibbs Free Energy and Q

Postby April P 1C » Sat Feb 03, 2018 4:47 pm

11.15 (a) 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 used deltaG* =-RTlnK
and then used
deltaG=deltaG*+RTlnQ

I'm not getting the correct answer though. How do I calculate Q?

Hi,

Yeah so to find Q, you can just plug in the partial pressures which is directly proportional to concentrations, so Q = (.98)^2/(.13). I hope that helps! That should then give you the right answer hopefully.
