delta G=0

Postby Emily Glaser 1F » Thu Feb 08, 2018 9:54 pm

When delta G=0, does that mean delta H and delta S are both zero too? Or they have numerical values that cancel?

Either delta H and delta S are 0, indicating that no reaction occurred, or delta H = T delta S and they cancel out.

Delta G=0 Does not necessarily mean delta H and delta S are zero as well. Delta G=0 means that the process is at equilibrium.

Delta G=delta H - TdeltaS so if delta G=0 then either both delta H and delta S are zero or delta H equals T times delta S

It does not necessarily mean that delta H an delta S are zero. When delta G =0, the system is at equilibrium. Therefore, either delta H or delta S is zero or delta S is equal to delta H.

When delta g is 0, it just means that it is at equilibrium. It is not enough to assume the other two quantities to alse be at 0.

Delta G=equilbrium
