Energy Change

Postby Jarrett Peyrefitte 2K » Thu Feb 06, 2020 4:56 pm

How does the Gibbs free energy change process relate to the direction of spontaneous reaction?

if its negative, it is spontaneous (will proceed forward as written)

A spontaneous reaction releases energy (it is favorable), and so the sign of ΔG (which is the energy available to do work) must be negative.

Does anyone have an example from the textbook?

A spontaneous reaction is favorable, and this occurs when deltaG is negative. It will proceed forward because of this.
