## 9.65

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

### 9.65

I understand how to do the problem, but I was just wondering: why do we only have to calculate delta S and not both delta S and delta H? Thank you!

I think its because the question is asking specifically about a temperature change with only has to do with the TdeltaS term, not the deltaH term. It's asking with respect to only temperature, not the entire Gibbs free energy equation.

### Re: 9.65

So do we just assume that delta H is positive?

I could be wrong on this, but I think since they are only referring to a temperature change, they just want you to look at ΔS. In that case, we can assume ΔH is constant or has no effect on the ΔG. Hope this helps!
