Equilibrium Constant and Gibbs Free Energy

Postby Ashley Kenney 1E » Sat Feb 16, 2019 9:06 pm

I'm a little confused as to how the equation is derived.
Where does the equilibrium constant come from in this equation? Thanks!

If GrGp, then the rxn is not at equilibrium and:

At Equilibrium, = 0
Resulting in

The equilibrium constant only comes into play when we use this equation at equilibrium

What is the difference between the delta G with the degree sign and the total G?
