How to approach 9.53

Postby Fenared Ortiz 3K » Tue Feb 06, 2018 9:05 pm

Calculate the change in molar Gibbs free energy for the process NH3(l) S NH3(g) at 1 atm and (a) 15.0 C; (b) 45. C (see Tables 8.3 and 9.1). In each case, indicate whether vaporization would be spontaneous.

Are we supposed to use the delta G = delta H - T * delta S
if so which delta H and which delta S should be used?

Yes, we are supposed to use the equation ∆G = ∆Hvap - T∆Svap. We use the vaporation values because NH3 is going from a liquid to a gas.
