Gibbs and concepts

Postby Miriam Sheetz 2B » Wed Feb 20, 2019 3:34 pm

What sort of conceptual things would we have to know regarding Gibbs Free Energy? Just wondering how we may have to apply it on a test.

You should probably know the values at which delta H and delta S will create a spontaneous reaction

You will also probably need to know if a reaction is exergonic or endergonic based on the value of G.

In addition, another concept that is good to keep in the back of your mind which Dr. Lavelle covered in lecture is that the numerical value of G has no bearing on how fast the reaction is happening. For example, a reaction with delta G = -344 kJ/mole is not necessarily happening at a faster rate that a reaction with delta G = -23 kJ/mole.
