delta G formation

Postby Emily Glaser 1F » Thu Feb 08, 2018 7:07 pm

What was stated in class about H2(g) --> H2(g) and its delta G of formation/entropy?

I know for this reaction, delta H of formation would be zero.
Is delta G of formation zero?
Does that mean delta S is zero too?

The ΔGf would also be 0 because there is no change between the reactants and products, and H2 is in its most stable form. If you know ΔHf is 0, and ΔGf is 0, then you can also conclude that ΔSf would also be 0 (using ΔG=ΔH-TΔS). Hope this helps!

Since the hydrogen gas is still the same substance, the entropy will not change.
