delta g equilibrium

Postby Emily Glaser 1F » Sat Mar 17, 2018 6:10 pm

does delta g = 0 mean equilibrium?

Yes, ∆G=0 means it is at equilibrium. However, the change in standard Gibbs Free energy would then be: ∆G° = – RT ln K.

Yes, because ΔG = ΔG° + RTln(Q). If ΔG = 0, 0 = ΔG° + RTln(Q), ΔG° = -RTln(Q) = -RTln(K), Q=K means at equilibrium
