Gibbs Free Energy

When delta G is equal to 0 it means it is at equilibrium?

Yes, a equilibrium, since both the forward and reverse reactions are occurring at the same rate, K = 1. Therefore, looking at the equation ΔG°= =RTlnK, plugging in K=1 would result in ΔG°= 0. Thinking at it conceptually, since both the forward and reverse reactions are occurring at the same rate, Gr = Gp and therefore no work is involved.
