Gibbs Free Energy in cal

Postby Helen Mejia 1I » Thu Feb 21, 2019 10:21 pm

When you calculate Gibbs free energy using enthalpy and entropy in cal will our final units for Gibbs free energy be cal per mole or just cal?

If enthalpy and entropy are given in terms of moles, then it would be cal/mole.

It should be measured in cal/mol or J/mol. This conversion is 1 J= 0.239 cal but you probably won't need to convert, just use which ever is given.
