## DeltaG dependence on equilibrium constant and pressure

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

### DeltaG dependence on equilibrium constant and pressure

Why does deltaG depend on pressure and the equilibrium constant?

### Re: DeltaG dependence on equilibrium constant and pressure

Delta G = -RTlnK, this equation shows the relationship between equilibrium constant and the Gibbs free energy. Meanwhile, the K can bewrite in terms of partial pressure if gases are involved in your reaction.
