Delta G equal Zero

Postby Mishta Stanislaus 1H » Mon Feb 05, 2018 7:33 am

Des delta G and delta S have to equal zero for a reaction to be reversible? Can someone explain the reason?

No, I don't thing so. When delta G is zero is just means that there are equal amounts of products and reactants.

Not necessarily, but delta G = 0 does mean that the reaction is at equilibrium.

Do you mean spontaneous? So for a reaction to be spontaneous the Delta G is negative while the Delta Stotal is positive for it to be spontaneous. I'm not sure what you mean by reversible, unless you are talking about if the forward reaction is favorable. Can you elaborate? Hope this helps.
