Delta G

Postby itzeelpadillaDis1A » Sun Feb 11, 2018 7:41 pm

When can we assume that delta G is zero?

We can assume that delta G is zero at equilibrium, because G(reactants)= G(products); At equilibrium, delta G = G(products) - G(reactants) = 0

I know you can assume Delta G is 0 when a solution/reaction is at equilibrium. This is how the equation standard delta G = -RTlnK is derived.
