### 4J.5) 7th edition of the textbook

For question 4J.5) of the 7th edition of the textbook, after finding the standard enthalpy and standard entropy you can calculate the standard Gibbs free energy. The solutions manual does this by using the temperature of 298K. When can you assume the temperature to be 298K?

Standard enthalpy and standard entropy (unless otherwise noted) are calculated under the standard temperature condition of 25 degrees celsius or 298K. So if you're using these values and the problem does not specify a temperature, you can assume it is 298K.

All of the values in the Appendix actually depend on the temperature being 298K as this is the standard temperature used in chemistry (my TA called it "the scientific room temperature")
