Delta G = 0

Postby Helen Mejia 1I » Thu Feb 21, 2019 10:31 pm

What does it mean when delta G is equal to zero? Does it have to do something with the amount of work the reaction can do?

I believe that if G is equal to zero the reaction is at equilibrium.

we also set delta G to 0 when we want to find the minimum temp to make a reaction spontaneous.

Also, a reaction at equilibrium does no work, so at delta G = 0 the reaction can do no work.

Reaction is at physical equilibrium, generally =0 at phase changes!
