∆G and work

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

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

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

∆G and work

how are ∆G and work related? is it that if something is spontaneous then it will do more work?

Re: ∆G and work

I believe that delta G is the measure of the maximum amount of energy available for work.

Re: ∆G and work

deltaG for a spontaneous process represents the energy that is free to do useful work

Re: ∆G and work

Delta G is equal to the maximum amount of energy available to do work at constant temperature and pressure.
